Will stocks head south in the summer? Is it time to cash in?
Should you sell in May and go away?
What other risks abound for your nest egg? How can you protect yourself, without missing out on gains and dividends?
Are annuities safe?
Can you really save thousands of dollars in your annual budget with smarter energy, budgeting and investing choices?
The truth is…
Today’s economy is far more fragile than it was in 2008 or 2000 (the Great Recession and the Dot Com Recession), with $20 trillion in public debt and almost $65 trillion in total debt (including consumer, corporate, state/city debt and loans).
The last two times the U.S. economy went 8 years without a correction, Americans and Canadians lost more than half of their retirement.
The current U.S. budget funds government through September. If the Debt Ceiling is not raised by then, we risk a credit downgrade (and higher interest rates and more debt).
Savings thousands in your annual budget and protecting your retirement is easy as a pie chart and costs less time and money than you are currently spending, without any change in lifestyle. If you wait for the politicians to do it (or for the headlines that they haven’t), you’ll be too late to protect yourself.
So, let’s discuss all of this and more.
