Will Stock Market Trend Sideways ?

Although there have been numerous warnings about the high valuation levels of the global stock markets (including from ourselves) – we have yet to see a firm indication of a stock market collapse. Instead the stock market appears to be entering a sideways trend.

If you are having trouble making progress with your investment portfolios, this could be the reason.

Sideways markets are notoriously difficult to navigate, so we would suggest that you diligently guard against unnecessary losses.

Take advice from your current adviser about the level of cash you should hold in your portfolio.

When markets are in a sideways trend, even standing still is preferable to losing ground.

We have recently written to our private clients advising then to change both the cash levels they hold and to change their asset allocation of their portfolios.

Remember Warren Buffet’s two rules for investors:

Rule 1) don’t lose money,

Rule 2) remember Rule 1.

Good luck with your investments!

A pension is a long-term investment that typically cannot be accessed until age 55 (57 from April 2028). The level of pension benefits offered could change depending on the value of your investments (and any income they may generate).

The interest rates in effect at the time you begin receiving benefits may also have an impact on your pension income. The tax consequences of pension withdrawals will depend on your unique situation. In later Finance Acts, tax rates, tax bases, and tax relief may change.

The opinions expressed by Ray Best are meant to inform and educate. Before making any investment decisions always take advice that is pertinent to your investment personality and financial situation.

You are aware that past performance will not necessarily be repeated in the future, but you should be aware that persistent poor performance invariably will.

The value of an investment and the income from it could go down as well as up.

The return at the end of the investment period is not guaranteed and you may get back less than you originally invested.
