Smart Money with Keith Springer Newsletter- Tis The Season For The Markets To Flux Up

Tis The Season For The Markets To Flux Up twitterfollowme

~Twitter tweets success

Written by Keith Springer 11.7.13

Twitter opened for trading this morning coming very close to the $42 price I predicted on my morning Fox40 segments. If you have no idea what Twitter does or how a tweet can change the world, you’re not alone. However, I will say that this is and will be one of the biggest ways of communication for years to come. If they can find a non-intrusive way to advertise on it, every company will need to participate.

In the bigger picture, there is an old adage in market folklore: “The market is always in a state of flux. Sometimes it fluxes down, but it usually fluxes up!” Hopefully you get the double entendre, because I’m just not going to go there, but it is very appropriate.

Good thing for us that we are entering what is typically a good season for investors. For the most part, November to February is the strongest period for stocks. Given that, we can only hope that the market will live up to expectations and flux up.

Next to the seasonally strong holiday season, the next best thing the market has going for it is that nobody believes in it. Practically everyone is expecting the walls to come crashing down at any minute. Fortunately the well informed and always prepared investor knows that stocks never crash when everybody expects them to. Once the overwhelming majority become complacent, then it will be time to run for the hills.

The key is to be invested appropriately based on your needs, and not an investment strategy based on greed. For most people saving for retirement, or those already there who are counting on their nest egg to last a lifetime, the enemy is NOT the S&P 500 but rather inflation and taxes, known as “purchasing power”.

If all you need is a 5 or 6 or 7% return, then by god just take that much risk. Getting that type of return is not that difficult in comparison to a market return, and can usually be achieved with only about 20 or 30 or 40% of the risk. You can make money in any market if you know where to look and when to hide.

If you are past the point where you can replace the money, like if it were lost in crash, then you must make sure that you adjust your finances to simply get the best returns with the least risk possible.
