3 benefits of a bear market

Assuming you’re in the workforce the entire time, and saving and investing consistently, which stock market would you choose to live through? If you picked scenario No. 3, congratulations. That’s the best market scenario if you want the greatest wealth at the end of the 30 years, because it offers the chance to buy stocks at lower prices, on average. What if you chose No. 1? Sorry, that’s the worst one. Meanwhile, No. 2 is somewhere in between.

If you behave properly, by not selling and instead continuing to buy stocks, the more bear markets you have during your savings years, the greater the likelihood that you will ultimately retire with a larger nest egg. This might seem counterintuitive. But remember, over very long time periods’think multiple decades’stock markets should mean revert. In other words, years of underperformance tend to be followed by years of outperformance’and those years of underperformance offer a great chance to buy shares cheaply.

3 Currencies to Watch in a Bear Market for Gold

Traditionally gold is supposed to perform well whenever political risks are high, trade tensions are escalated, or economic growth is threatened, but that has not been the case in 2018. Between rising U.S. interest rates and the strengthening dollar, the bear market for gold could be here to stay.

Currencies and gold have an intimate relationship and you rarely see the price of gold and the value of the U.S. dollar move in the same direction. That’s because gold is priced in dollars and when investors are worried about the outlook for the U.S. economy, they like to park their money in gold.
