Where yes and where not to invest my money in times of uncertainty

The opinions of the employees of s You are personal.


We are in a historical moment when the uncertainty get anywhere fake news They are in abundance and we do not know when everything will return to normal.

However, one thing that is completely correct is that people are afraid of their financial and economic environment.

Many people have become unemployed, many others have been quarantined without pay, and many others are afraid of being unemployed.

And as I always say, the worst number is 1.

Well, if you run out of 1 … you’ll be at 0.

And the same goes for your source of income. If you have only one source of income and for everything that happens, you lose it … stay at zero.

That’s why I always recommend generating multiple sources of income.

And I don’t mean that you have five jobs and double every shift, if not that you have investments that generate more money for you so that you don’t drift off when one of your sources of income disappears.

Although it is very attractive to invest in these times,

It’s time to invest in all vehicles.

During crises, there are vehicles that are more attractive and safer, and many others that lose value throughout the economic environment.

For this reason, I would like to introduce you to some areas of investment that you would like to invest in today and others that are not worth doing (I explain this due to the current economic environment).

WHERE TO INVEST TODAY?

  1. Actions: If you have kept up to date on everything that has happened on the stock exchange, you know that the shares of many companies have fallen due to COVID-19 and the economic environment. For example, the shares of companies dedicated to tourism have dropped sharply (cruises, airlines, hotels …). However, when all of this happens, it is very likely that stocks will go up and you will make a lot of money.

To invest in the stock market, you can get advice from a broker or estate agents.

  1. Metals: Metals are countercyclical, which means that they do not lose their value in a crisis, and this is where many of the richest people in the world support each other. You can invest in gold. Today I do not recommend investing in silver as its value has been impacted by declines in production and manufacturing.
  2. Protection: Do you have life or large health insurance if something happens to you during an emergency? If you answer no, you are in a very good time to invest in them.

Many people say to me “Insurance is very expensive” and I always answer them “What would be more expensive? Pay insurance monthly or lose everything you have worked all your life if something happens to you?

WHERE DO NOT INVEST TODAY

  1. New business: In times of crisis, investing your money in new companies or startups is not a good option. Why? Because with all the economic context, we really have no way of knowing if the investment will be successful and we can’t know when we can see our profits.
  2. Real estate (for offices): Many companies worldwide are located in Home office mode. This is the reason if you decide to invest in rooms from cooperate or rent your property as a workplace, Your investment may not be successful because no one is looking for these rooms.
  3. Forex: This type of investment is very risky and more if you don’t have enough experience in the field. Although FOREX is a place where you can make a lot of money, you can lose everything if you don’t have enough knowledge.

And today, if something goes wrong, you will lose even more with all the volatility, and since it is not a regulated market, you have no one to say if something goes wrong.

If you are determined to generate new sources of income, try to stay informed and choose none because “it seems good,” because instead of profiting, you could lose your money because you don’t know the rules of the game.
