After some technical glitches with our webinar provider Zoom, we finally have the link to the Tuesday March 17th webinar entitled:
Weathering the Coronavirus Market Sell Off: Using time tested principles and new technology to build more resilient investors and portfolios.
Click below for full replay
During the webinar two days we ago, we really divided our time into 3 specific areas
- The current state of the market and the virus. (as of 3/17/2020)
- Time tested strategies for investing through a crisis and potential mistakes to avoid, both real and emotional.
- Demonstration of our system called Riskalzye to better assess your personal feelings on risk and then identify potential outcomes for aggressive, moderate and conservative portfolios in up and down markets.
Of course, life and the markets continue to change rapidly in the 48 hours since our webinar. The cases of COVID-19 here in Michigan and the US continue to rise. Italy remains in lockdown with the death toll rising. However, there is good news out of China as today marks the first day that they have no new cases. We’ve read and heard of some preliminary positive results for drug treatment and progress towards a potential vaccine later in the year.
In the meantime, the Fed continues to assist the economy with swift, massive monetary stimulus. As reference, the FED took 1 day to cut rates to Zero when it took them months to do the same thing at the apex of the 2008 Financial crisis.
Lawmakers and the White House have passed its first wave of fiscal stimulus with more planned. The European Central Bank is also responding swiftly and decisively to soften the intensity of what is now widely accepted as an upcoming global recession.
That being said, this is still a health crisis first and the rate and speed at which we as a nation can battle this terrible outbreak will be the ultimate decider on the economic impact.
Meanwhile, the lessons and insights from the webinar 48 hours ago remain the same today. Stick to your plan, more now than ever.
