I just sold my stocks

Im convinced theres gonna be a stock market crash in 2022. Probably right before they raise interest rates. It may be starting now. But I decided to sell most of my stock portfolio. Anyone doing the same? Whats a good place to keep your money in if its crashing?

Is It Normal?

  • Given that much of the stock market these days is more of a gamble than an investment.... I personally would say that you did a good thing.

    There are many other better investments where you are not likely to loose so much as with the stock market if things go south; and some of them pay decent rates of return with only moderate risk.

    • The problem is finding an investment that gives better returns than what it'll lose by inflation. Even if it gains 6% a year it may still lose money at this point.

      • You are correct.

        What most people don't know is that the Federal Government limits what kind of investment opportunities that can be offered to normal people.

        If you become a "Qualified Investor" then there are much better opportunities available. I recently had such a qualified investor tell me that he has been making 10% a year for the past decade or so on very safe investments.

        You can be certified as a Qualified Investor if you have over $1 Million in assets not including your house and its associated property, or have made over $200,000 per year for an individual (or over $300,000 per year as a couple) for multiple years with the expectation that income will continue in the future.

        Those of us who are not qualified investors... have a much harder time of finding good investments.
