The Retirement Trainer

May 27, 2022

In case you haven’t noticed, we’re all on a roller coaster ride this year. As investors, it’s virtually impossible to predict what’s going to happen when it comes to leverage, supply chains, and rampant inflation.

However, we can do our research, ask questions, and do our best to make sense of what’s going on so we can best expect the unexpected. 

In today’s episode, we explore the history of market volatility (and where it comes from), what makes our current economic moment unique, and how to ensure your plan will carry you through this ride that we’re all on. 

In this podcast interview, you’ll learn:

  • Why there’s a correlation between stock market leverage and consumer debt.
  • How investing on margin can set you up to lose more than you actually have.
  • What happened to the market when different bubbles popped over the course of history–and why we’re at a tipping point right now.
  • Why crypto, gold, and silver are more correlated to leverage than their evangelists would like you to believe.
  • How a good financial plan takes emotion out of decision making.
  • Several strategies you can use to position yourself advantageously throughout corrections and downturns.
