New York - We do not like to get into a ridiculous effort to predict when a market crash will occur. No one has any idea when a market crash will occur or how bad it will be and we believe that you should not listen to anyone who tells you they do. They are just not being honest.
Market crashes and bear markets do occur. The trick to ensuring you are not severely impacted by one is to design a consistent investment approach. If you are concerned about a crash - keep any funds that you believe you will need over a rolling three year period in short-term and high quality liquid investments. For longer term goals you should look for good stocks at reasonable prices.
