Our Most Asked Question

The most frequent question we get at GenWealth is “What’s the market going to do?”

Today, that question is much more frequent given the run-up in stocks since the 2016 election.  There seems to be a general consensus among the investing public that a big downturn is just days away because it’s been so long since we had one.

What you need to keep in mind is that bull markets don’t die due to old age. They die due to excesses like too much debt, too much spending and too much confidence.

So, where are we now?

We are very excited to give you that insight at our first ever online workshop, “Outlook 2018.”  This perennial subject is so important we decided to work with our partners at LPL Research to change our presentation from a live to an online event.  We know you’re busy so we are making it easy to participate.

And if you’re wondering about the type of information you’ll get from Outlook 2018, here’s a bit of a preview with LPL Chief Market Strategist Ryan Detrick:

The most important thing about all of this is not the information, but what you do with it. Remember Investments and their performance is only a part of your overall financial strategy.  Working with your advisor to infuse the market knowledge with your plan to reach your goals and dreams should be at the top of your agenda.


Is it important whether small cap funds will potentially outperform large caps? Sure. But it’s more important to have a strategy that gives you a chance at having sustainable retirement income and having an advisor with the knowledge to use what the markets may give us to work with you.
