How to protect against a correction or crash

Despite a recent upturn in the share market, weakness could persist. Here’s how to respond.

Summary: The bull case for future share market moves argues that the world continues to be flooded with liquidity, private and public debt is falling, oil prices are falling and emerging markets will help offset the ageing populations of developed countries. But the bear case suggests that deleveraging will drag on growth, central banks have run out of ammunition, China’s economic miracle is ending and all major asset classes are overvalued.

Key take out: Given this uncertainty, balance your portfolio by allocating assets based on your age, insure your portfolio through a stop loss and make sure to diversify.
