Scott Phillips on why the crash is coming, and what you can do

Market downturns are inevitable, and while ‘buying the dip’ is today’s maxim, it’s hard to hold your nerve when you’ve lost 30% or more of your capital. So what will you do when the market falls?

The Motley Fool’s Scott Phillips joins Your Wealth to share his thoughts on:

  • Where to keep your money when markets are risky
  • How much cash you need to ensure you’re optimising your portfolio
  • What sort of investments to hold when markets fall, and
  • What to do if fear is keeping you up at night.
