The AAII Pittsburgh Chapter presents...

"How to Avoid Bear Markets and Catch the Bulls"

    Discussed by:

    Ian Abbott
    Owner, Abacus Financial Services

Many people lost significant amounts of their retirement nest eggs when the market dropped 40% in 2008. Despite what Chairman Bernanke and other financial experts claimed, the problem was neither “contained” nor “unforeseen” and, as in the 1930s, was not due to a single event. Instead, the crisis followed a chain reaction of crashes and mini-crashes that extended for more than a decade.Are we now standing at a similar precipice, the brink of another collapse? Can you afford to watch the market disintegrate without a plan to protect your assets from such events? Trusting your security to luck or inaccurate forecasts won’t solve the problem. This presentation will show you how to take action.
