"How do I keep my money safe?"
It's a question on the minds of many investors – and rightly so, given last week's hijinks. First there was China, then politics, then rates… a trifecta of sorts.
The ugly truth, as we saw perfectly illustrated last week, is that too many people wait until a major market move is already in progress before they start thinking about how to protect their portfolio.
These folks are starting from five steps back. For many investors – especially those who have just worked up the courage to get back in, having gotten shellacked in the global financial crisis a decade ago – this couldn't have happened at a worse time. They're scared and frustrated.
