At best, successful investing can seem a daunting endeavor. And today, it’s even more challenging as the intermediate-term outlook is fairly positive but the shorter points to a likely correction. Financial analysis and investment options seem difficult: defer new buying and risk missing a further rally or buy in spite of the apparent warning signs and risk enduring a pullback that might be greater than anticipated.
Unfortunately, investors can’t sit in cash or CDs for long either, as they are guaranteed to lose purchasing power. One must find the right strategy that participates in the ups but protects in the downs. It is essential that investors have an active portfolio that gets the very best return with the least amount of risk possible and also one that actively adapts to changing conditions.
