This past year we saw a rather sudden and unpleasant drop in some of the most valuable stocks and a major Asian economy stagnating after years of consistent double-digit growth. Not surprisingly, all this has investors worried about what the future holds. Are you worried about investing in the current market?

2016 has not been without trouble and it seems as if the current market tumult may persist into the first quarter. How does a smart investor stay shielded from the mental strain that comes from dealing with the ups and downs of our current global market?

If you have some of your savings spread across a broad investment portfolio and the current market trends are causing you sleepless nights, a retirement advisor can help make sense of what is happening right now. It might be interesting to ride the market up and down as we go through transitions, but that is way too risky.

With oil prices at record lows and global demand for stocks waning, could we be seeing the rise of a bear market?

What is happening in the global market comes out of normal cause-effect scenarios and can be explained. Keep in mind that a bear market is preceded by a recession and we do not have any sign of that at the moment. The drop in oil prices can traced down to moderated economic growth and manufacturing markets in China and other major oil consumers- and the combination of low demand and over-production in Saudi Arabia – and soon Iran – leads to saturation of a major commodity.

Combine that with Fed rate hikes (and talk of future hikes) + sketchy financial situations in Europe and you have a global market that is in the process of adjusting to significant ripples. Stocks are not dead and oil is not going under. All these movements in the markets have caused major ruffles and it might take a few months for prices to adjust but ultimately, the global market will adjust. The best approach is to anticipate future price positions and invest in what you know. For expert market analysis, you need an experienced investment advisor to guide you through common investment concerns.
