Simplicity | Security | Assurance | Timing | Cheap Insurance >> S&P 500 Index
In contrast to our typical lean toward writing about how active traders can better engage the markets, this piece is for everyday people who are exposed to the markets, but too busy to pay any meaningful attention to them.
This one's for all those who have savings or investments tied to the S&P 500
Are you one of the legions of self-directed "buy & hold" index investors hoping that the stock market will continue higher to return your account balance to its former value of NINE-YEARS ago?
Have you cashed out wondering if it is safe to get back in? What will you do if the market starts to fall hard again? Do you have a plan? If you do not, it is time you get with some people who do.
The benchmark from which all others are measured
Formally introduced in 1957, the S&P 500 index represents investments in 500 of the highest quality common stocks actively traded in the United States.
After the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the S&P 500 is the most widely followed index. It has become a benchmark measure to which the investment community at large aspires to match and compare performance with.
History proves that the stock market rises in value over time. We have over 100-years of statistical data to quantify this well-known truth. Such common wisdom then persuades our collective reasoning toward investing blindly with confidence in such a sure thing.
Do NOT be seduced by this easy-way-out reasoning, we beg of you
Before buying hook line and sinker into the "sure thing" aspects of long-term buy & hold stock investing, one must first answer the following three questions:
- What is your timeframe, or how long do you plan to keep your funds invested?
- Are you willing to endure watching your hard-earned money lose half of its value over a period of 10-years or more?
- What contingency plans will you put into effect if markets are at or near cyclical lows just when you planned to use those savings for their intended purpose?
If you are willing to roll the timing dice and accept whatever fate the market delivers at your specific time of need, well then congratulations, you are a bona fide buy, hold, and hope investor.
If you are more of a stay-in-control of your own destiny type however, it is likely you will reject the egregiously flawed buy & hold sales pitch. If you are not quite sure just how to take charge, or how simple it can be, let us share with you some advice.
