Bull Markets can be a lot of fun. Watching your portfolio grow elicits feelings of happiness and often makes you completely forget about the last Bear Market. You may even start to believe the next Bear is years down the road.

It’s easy to get caught up in thoughts such as: “I know the market will eventually turn, but I’ll have plenty of time to see it coming,” or “It’s definitely not happening tomorrow.”  The irony is we have never had a Bull Market that hasn’t been followed by a Bear Market.

So, what’s lost in a Bull Market is PERSPECTIVE.  Combating the natural tendency to overlook oncoming Bear Markets requires you to maintain systematic control of your portfolio’s exposure to risk and volatility.

It is also imperative to remain diligent and steadfast. Your return is ultimately a result of your portfolio’s structure and your investment discipline. Stick with your appropriate investment strategy throughout a Bull Market. By doing so, you are more likely to experience consistency over time. While you may give up some Bull Market gains, you may also avoid some of the pitfalls of the next Bear Cycle. In short, keep perspective!

If you don’t have a strategy don’t wait to develop one. Believing you have an unlimited amount of time before the next Bear Market occurs is somewhat naive. Nobody knows when it will take place, how long it will last or how deep it may go. If you need assistance in understanding or creating an investment strategy that fits your risk tolerance and supports your standard of living, I am happy to work alongside you. You can also take this survey to gain initial insight into your own risk tolerance.
