How Much Risk Should You Take With Your Investments

Recommended Posts

My personal view, ask yourself what percentage of your portfolio you can financially and emotionally afford to lose, recognize that stocks can quickly lose half their value, and work backwards to determine what percentage of your portfolio needs to be bonds to prevent you from exceeding that loss.

This is an important topic. Many young workers have not experienced a major crash during their saving years. Some of us NOW know all to well that not understanding risk is a determent to successful investing.

During the next crash, which we may be in right now for all I know, I’ll be publicly documenting my mental state in the form as my 90+% stock portfolio plummets.

Maybe that’ll help future readers gain insight into the emotion of it before experiencing it themselves, because you’re right Tony, this is critical and a lot of people haven’t fully and appropriately considered it.
