As you begin to look at the year ahead and wonder how you should invest given everything going on, you may be considering other types of investments.

Warren Buffett once said, “Diversification is protection against ignorance.”

When you think about it, this quote makes perfect sense. If you diversify too much, you will never be an expert in any one industry or company and could lose sight of how to best manage your investment.  

In this instance, ignorance is most certainly not bliss.

Is the market going to crash soon? 

If you have found yourself asking this question and wondering where we will be in the next few months, or even by the end of this year, you’re not alone. If the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that there is a lot we can’t control. 

But if the stock market does crash, it won’t be the first time. Stock market crashes have occurred throughout history from time to time, and although this may not be a comforting thought, they are always unexpected.

Worrying about when the market will crash won’t help, but learning what to do before, during, and after it occurs will. My goal is to leave you with all the information you need to know if a stock market crash is on the horizon… and it very well could be. 

This way, you can take that worry and turn it into productive action that will actually help you handle and even benefit from a stock market crash.

There’s a lot of fear surrounding stock market crashes, so it’s natural to wonder if we’re on the cusp of a crash and what to do about it. 

While you can’t predict the stock market, knowing how to spot the signs of a market crash can help you prepare for an impending downturn. 

Before we dive in, I want to be clear: knowing a crash could be coming will only get you so far. 

Think about it. If you see the warning signs of a market downfall, but haven’t put in the work to confidently know what you should and shouldn’t be invested in both now, and after the market drops – where does that really leave you? 

That’s why in this post I’ll show you not only the warning signs of a market crash approaching, but also what to do about it and how to spot companies that will survive any market volatility. 

Let’s dive in.

I want to stress something. It’s not difficult to learn how to invest. You—or anyone—can learn to do it on your own and get started in just 10 easy steps. However, you do have to put in the work to actually learn it.

Don’t think you can just open up a brokerage account and start making smart calls tomorrow.

It takes a bit of time and proper investing training to learn how to invest the right way, but if you do, you could experience incredible returns on your investments, and if you don’t, you could be sorry.
