S1 EP102: How to Handle a Bear Market with Lee Michael Murphy

February 2, 2022



Bear markets are an inevitable part of life. However, it can be challenging to anticipate them, to predict how long they will last, or to gauge the extent to which they will affect stock prices. It is not just possible to survive bear markets, but you can also benefit from them. You can use the following techniques to reduce or even profit from the bear market.


The bear market is characterized by a sharp decline in the prices of securities combined with a sweeping negativity that continues to permeate the market. The more investors anticipate losses in a bear market and the more they sell, the more pessimism grows. 


It can be hard to predict when stocks will bottom out after they begin to decline. In these cases, identifying the best timing and managing active trading at the onset of a bear market can be challenging.


In a bear market, what can we do to protect ourselves from losses, or even make money?


In this week’s episode, Lee Michael Murphy discusses why the market's so volatile, explains what needs to happen to fix the current issues, and how to handle a bear market. With career advisor Sergio Patterson and attorney Matthew McElroy, tune in to this week’s episode of The Free Retiree Show.
