Fear bubbles: how to prepare for a hurricane in the stock market?

For the past six years
Wall Street is “sunny” weather,
stocks are growing and everything seems to be
it goes well. But some investors
are concerned that the next “rainy”
the day may come soon.
Shares already very expensive, not correction
It has been for several years, and the central
Federal Reserve – Bank of America
system – can shake up all markets
in September this year.

The only place
where you can ride out the storm – a fund
money market. It is considered
one of the most reliable investments –
it is much better than to hide their money
in a bank account. Here’s how it works:
you put money into the fund, and the manager
Fund invests in some of them
relatively safe assets:
short-term government bonds, corporate
or municipal debt. The goal – to get
work money more than if they
just put in a savings account,
and at the same time minimize the risks –
they are much lower than when investing
in shares or investing in the most
bond funds. "This often
It serves as a substitute for bank account".

director of financial markets in Fideltiy.

Most people
invest in funds for several
months to try to compare

Rates will do two things. Firstly, any
the regulator’s decision violates the dynamics
the stock market, often scares investors
and makes investing more
safe assets. Second, the rise

savings and bonds.

interest rates near zero in 2008,
cash and bank accounts
basically did not give any income –
almost nothing. but historically
it is known that if the rates are
above – is expected to happen, and in this
year – the money in the funds receive
more profit than your usual
savings accounts in banks.

money in the money market fund. One of
the most terrible examples of what can
go wrong – a story about money

Great Recession, as they say
investors "dollar broke" and this
meant that investors will receive only
90 cents for every $ 1 they put
to the fund. They lost money. Why? Fund
I invested in Lehman Brothers, which has not sustained
