The first week of 2018 saw robust data for multiple stock-market records and while that is excellent; what remains a concern is complacency when investing.
Don’t misunderstand, we maintain our optimistic outlook for the first-quarter of 2018; however, it is imperative that investors be vigilant on matters such as geopolitical issues, central bank actions and inflation.
We are in line for a market correction, with high valuations and cryptocurrencies take over, it is too early to call an end to the bull market.
What must end is the passive investing.
To achieve better risk-rewards ratio aggressive tactics must be used. Your asset allocations must reflect where we are in the business cycle and what comes next.
The biggest risk to your portfolio is your complacency, remember the ‘Goldilocks’ environment won’t last forever.
