You Shouldn’t Worry About The Next Financial Crisis For This Simple Reason | by Paulo A. Jose


Yes, the next recession is on the way

Stock prices fall like lightning and panic investors.

Volatility killed gains on our deposits.

It grabs random investors, shatters returns and poisons self-confidence.

This is not the end of the global economy as we know it.

For a very simple reason:

Financial crises have always existed and will always exist

We all remember the last financial crisis. Or the previous one. Or the precedent of the precedent.

Does the same story repeat itself over and over again?


But don’t believe me, believe the facts. Against the facts there is no argument.

Here is the price of the S&P 500 since 1930.


It’s old, I know, but as a little twist, you can also watch all the mid to large scale crises in the stock market.

I bet you had heard of all these crises before.

I did a little more research on the history of global stock market crises and was able to find over 30 financial crises around the world between 1900 and 2017.

That’s right, over 30!

This means that a market somewhere in the world is wiped out every four years.

It gets even more extreme if you look at the crises between 2000 and 2017.

Here I find a total of 13 minor and major stock market crashes.

This means a crash every 16 months.

What can we learn from it now?

To be honest, two things:

  1. The next financial crisis is fast approaching

That’s a fact. There will always be the next financial or economic crisis. And the one after. And the one after.

2. The world kept spinning after the financial crises

And prices also recovered at some point.

Here’s what you should do during the next financial crisis

Super simple.

Even old.

It’s true, always the same!

You must invest a small amount (month after month or quarter after quarter) over a period of 15 to 30 years.

If you haven’t already, you better start worrying.

In the long term, it has been proven that whether you start investing in a bubble or during a financial crisis, over time it will stabilize on its own.

If the stock markets are in the red again due to the next financial crisis then you are buying a lot of stocks at a very good price.

History always repeats itself.

Seen in this light, a crisis is actually a good thing for long-term investors!

The world will continue to turn even after future crises.

What we can do is take this opportunity to further increase our portfolio at a reasonable price.

If you have the courage not to flee but to face the storm, at some point the sun will rise again on the trading floor.

The only way the next financial crisis will affect you

Very simple:


If you start to retreat in the middle and run away, you will bitterly regret it at some point in the future.

I will give it to you in writing.

The only way to lose money in the stock market is to sell too soon.

Remember, during financial crises, even in the darkest times, the earth and the stock market never stopped turning.

As long as the sun rises in the morning and people trade with each other, the stock market will not cease to exist.

Stock prices will continue to rise over the long term.
