“Don’t put your eggs in one same basket.”
If you are reading this from a tier-1 economy country, this is for you.
Till 2018, share market was way too bully & it was raising like a slingshot since 2003-04. What I am mentioning here is, the graph only grew further. There were no pretty big setbacks. Not in Europe, China or Japan as well. In America too it raised pretty well. People wanted to be there & invested religiously. 2018 wasn’t a awful year, but not a productive one either. Most people will agree with me about loses with buy calls.
Now. Let’s talk about the cure & everyone’s favourite “Technology stocks”. Facebook, Google, Oracle, Amazon & Apple. They aren’t the same bet as they used to be. It completely depends on the growth of US economy. With Donald Trump’s trade war on it’s verge, it’s damn unsure about furthermore. Just doubledown your investment in such stocks. Investors used to think these are the stocks which will perform well till next few years or a decade. Predictions talk a slower growth year for 2019.
No, with public expenditure collapsing even China isn’t able to grow at the pace it used to be. The worst part of that is, EU’s growth associated to China. When Chinese economy fails to surpass the expectations, the same time even EU struggles with it. Their manufacturing giant stature isn’t a bubble. It reflects & effects everyone in this connected world. Towards this issue, Chinese government is already working with some new rules & relaxations. Let’s keep a watch on it.
(I didn’t mention anything about UK, looking at the Brexit issues going on. Doesn’t matter how badly I am attached, money matters).
Emerging markets!! Yeah, we are talking now. Some Asian & African markets. & You should include Japan & Australia to your account as well. Think about the feasibility. Wealth isn’t stagnant, It shouldn’t be. For this coming year, currency & banking stocks will be my pick in India. For consumer electronics stocks, look towards Japan. Spread your money wisely. Invest half in rich economies & half in emerging markets. I will keep on talking about my opinions onwards. Put forward your best strategy for best results.
Before anyone asks me more about gold or commodity, crypto & Forex related products; I will only suggest about educating self first. Products which give you instant enormous benefits are volatile, stop depending on those.
I am wishing you all a delightful productive year ahead. Stay tuned & fetch your dreams eyes open.
Happy new year 2019.
