When the market is up, you shouldn’t hold on to high-risk investments
I know what you’re thinking: why do I need to hold onto high-stakes investments like stocks and bonds?
I mean, why would I?
After all, investing in a company that has a high probability of earning a higher return than a company with a lower probability of achieving that high return is the sort of thing that makes the most sense.
But, I know this because I’ve been holding onto a few high-performance bonds and stocks for the past few years.
I’ll admit, the bonds were risky.
They were bought by people who thought they were investing in an amazing company.
If that company ever went under, the price of their bonds could plummet and, in the worst case, I’d have to sell my shares of that company and put them in a liquidator.
That was a risk I couldn’t bear.
And when the market tanked, the bond market tanking, the stocks tanking and I was left with just a few bonds and a few stocks that were worth nothing and would fall in value.
So, what’s the deal?
Why would I buy a high-potential company and risk the rest of my money on a company where the stock price has fallen so far?
And if I lose my money in this investment, where do I go from here?
You see, if you buy stocks and bond funds because they’re the most likely to outperform a company you don’t understand, you should do so because you don´t understand the company.
If you invest in a low-potency company that doesn’t generate as much profit as you thought it would, you’re not doing yourself any favors.
A low-quality company can be a better investment than a high quality one because the low-level companies aren’t always going to be as good.
You don’t need to own a low quality company to enjoy a high return.
You don´tt need to be a risk-taker, either.
There are some high-quality companies that you might be able to buy cheaply and sell cheaply.
If you are able to find an investment that is a good value for your money and you can afford to buy it, then it might be worth it to buy a stock or a bond, even if the stock or bond has a low return.
When I invested in a high performance fund, I didn’t want to invest in something that had a low chance of making a profit, so I invested mainly in companies that were growing at an average rate of about 3%.
If the growth rate in that company were 5%, then it was a good investment because it was growing at the average rate and I could get a decent return on my money.
If the growth in that stock or the growth of the bond were 4%, then I was buying a bad investment and that was probably not worth it.
The same thing applies to low-risk stocks and high-performing bonds.
If they are growing at a high rate, then you are more likely to be able and willing to invest.
If the rate of growth is less than 5%, the low risk stocks and low-performing bond investments are not worth your money.
These are the types of investments that you should invest in if you have the ability to buy them.

The Bottom LineFor a while now, stocks and stocks and more stocks and stock funds have been rising as a result of higher yields.
Now, as you can see from the chart above, the stock market has been gaining in value since the early 2000s.
However, the market isn’t always rising, which is why the bond markets have fallen.
What caused the stock markets to go down and why is this a problem?
The stock market fell in the summer of 2016 because the Federal Reserve stopped buying Treasuries.
Treasuries are like gold; if they go up in value, then people who hold them tend to hold more of them.
If Treasurys go down, then they will become more expensive.
This has made the bond portfolios of the wealthy less attractive, as well.
In addition, the Fed stopped buying bonds back in 2014.
Since then, the dollar has gone down against the Japanese Yen.
To make matters worse, the yen has lost its purchasing power against the US dollar.
All of this means that the bond funds that you buy to buy Treasury or bond have lost their value.
If bonds go down or they lose purchasing power, then your investment has gone up in price and you will be paying more for your investment.
Why do bonds go up when stocks go down?
A stock is only worth what someone else is willing to pay you for it.
If it’s cheap, the buyer will pay you a high price, and if it’s expensive,
