Stock market crash in 2019, but it could be another year of big gains
Stock market crashes tend to be much less common than they were in the past.
But they do happen.
A year ago, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 762 points, or 3%, from its peak in March of 2016.
That’s just one of several reasons to consider the market’s return to positive territory this year.
The market has had a strong run, with its most recent close hitting a record high of 2,000.
It has been buoyed by the Federal Reserve’s announcement of interest rate hikes, which will likely make a big difference to the economy.
The Federal Reserve is currently hiking rates by 0.25% a month.
That would raise interest rates on average by 0,072 percentage points annually.
The U.S. has been doing quite well since the Great Recession ended.
For now, however, investors should brace for more market turbulence.
The Dow has hit a new record low for the year.
The Nasdaq has also been trading at a record low, which has been a source of anxiety for some investors.
If stocks do hit new highs, they will be aided by a slowing economic recovery.
This could mean that the market has a good chance of picking up some of the lost ground from the year before.
What to do if the market falls again?
If the market drops again, there are several things you can do.
First, don’t panic.
First, stay away from the market if you haven’t already.
That will help you stay on top of the market.
If you are a small-cap investor, that could be a good idea.
But if you are investing in stocks, it might be better to buy a bit more in order to gain exposure to the market, says James Altucher, an analyst at Oppenheimer & Co. If your money is tied up in stocks and you are trying to save for retirement, you should start to put more money into the market and maybe hold off on investing in the stock market.
Second, you might want to consider taking a haircut on your stocks.
The market is trading at an all-time high.
That means you are holding a lot of stock.
In fact, the average amount of stock that people hold in their portfolios is at least $4,400, according to Morningstar.
So if you have $400 in your portfolio, you are likely to be able to get a $200 haircut on a stock.
You can also use a brokerage firm to help you cut your own exposure.
This means that you are less likely to lose money when the market plunges.
This is especially important if you want to invest your money in a large stock such as the Dow.
Third, the stock markets have come a long way since the 2008 financial crisis.
The stock market is up about 50% over the past 12 months.
That could help you avoid the downturn this year, Altuchersays.
Fourth, it’s possible that you may need to make a larger buyback.
This might help you get out of debt and save for a rainy day, but is more complicated than just buying back a few stocks.
So, if you can’t make a buyback in the short term, consider selling a stock that is trading in a higher range, Altruhersays, says.
Lastly, you can sell your shares in the hope that the stock will recover.
Investors who bought into the stock are likely still in it for the long haul, so if the stock falls even more, they could end up losing money.
So even if the economy is improving, it is still possible that the markets could get back to the lows of the early 2000s.
Do you think stock market bubbles will be in the rearview mirror?
It’s certainly possible that stock market prices will be rising again in the coming months.
But we still have plenty of time to avoid another one of these stock market crashes, Altough says.
