    The stock market has been on an upward streak for the past two years, with the Dow and S&P near their all-time highs. Recently, though, they've shown signs of toppiness. And certainly, the macroeconomic risks loom larger than ever. Where are equity prices most likely to go from here?

    Interest rates on bonds have nearly doubled off of their historic lows from a year ago. That puts downward pressure on bond market prices, as well as a tremendous number of other important asset classes, like housing. Where are interest rates most likely to move next?

    For these (and other) reasons, the current environment is extremely challenging for investors.

    Ask the Adviser: Risk-Managed Investing

    Over the long term, the best offense is a good defense

    If you have money in the financial system (stocks, bonds, retirement funds, etc.) and you share the same skepticism most of our readers have about the markets' future stability, how should you invest those funds?

    Most of the folks who inquire about our endorsed financial advisers are far more interested in preserving the purchasing power of their wealth vs. aggressively trying to beat the market average each year. But how exactly does one do that?

    Last month, we piloted a new type of podcast in which we directed your questions about money to one of the financial advisory firms we endorse. Based on the strongly positive response we received from listeners, we are going to make this a regular recurring feature.

    In this week's podcast, Chris speaks with Bill Cole, Mike Preston and John Llodra: partners at the other firm we endorse.

    Answering Your Requests for a Recommended Financial Advisor

    Finally! A firm that is skeptical of the stock market

    One of the most frequent and urgently-voiced questions we receive from our readers is: “Can you recommend a financial advisor, ideally one aligned with the “Three Es” outlook of the Crash Course?”

    And with the turbulence in the market over the past year — most notably the huge price swings in the stock market and precious metals in the last two months alone — we’re seeing a notable increase in demand for these investment manager referrals.

    Which is why we spent the better part of this year performing due diligence on a number of advisors to find a firm we felt comfortable endorsing. I’m happy to report that we’ve finally selected one.
