If his­to­ry is any gui­de, bo­th the eco­no­my and the mar­ke­ts will even­tual­ly re­co­ver – de­spi­te all the ne­ga­ti­ve head­li­nes. As an in­ve­stor, it’s im­por­tant to be pro­per­ly po­si­tio­ned for the re­co­ve­ry well in ad­van­ce. No one can say exac­tly when we’ll see a re­co­ve­ry. What looks li­ke the be­gin­ning of a new long-term bull mar­ket to­day could turn out to be a short-li­ved “bear mar­ket ral­ly” mon­ths from now – or vi­ce ver­sa. The key thing for in­ve­stors to know is that the mar­ke­ts ha­ve al­ways re­co­ve­red stron­gly, even af­ter a ma­jor eco­no­mic cri­sis that, at the ti­me, had ma­ny peo­ple doub­ting they ever would. The­re ha­ve been other do­wn­turns as se­ve­re as the cur­rent one – The Oil Cri­sis (197375), The Ear­ly ’80s Re­ces­sion (1980-82), Black Mon­day (1987) and the Tech­no­lo­gy Bub­ble (2000-2001), to na­me a few. Ea­ch ti­me, af­ter suf­fe­ring a ma­jor set­back, the mar­ke­ts re­co­ve­red and con­ti­nued their long-term up­ward ad­van­ce, ty­pi­cal­ly ma­king up los­ses wi­thin two years.
