August 2015 Chapter Meeting

How to Avoid Bear Markets and Catch a Bull

Ian Abbott, Owner, Abacus Financial Services ([email protected])

Many people lost significant amounts of their retirement nest eggs when the market dropped 40% in 2008. Despite what the Fed Chairman and other financial experts claimed, the problem was neither “contained” nor “unforeseen” and, as in the 1930s, was not due to a single event. Instead, the crisis followed a chain reaction of crashes and mini-crashes that extended for more than a decade. Are we now standing at a similar precipice, the brink of another collapse? Can you afford to watch the market disintegrate without a plan to protect your assets from such events? Trusting your security to luck or inaccurate forecasts won’t solve the problem. This presentation will show you how to take action.

Attend This Meeting and Learn…
• What caused the 2008 meltdown
• Nine specific indicators—free online—that can warn you before the next market collapse
• The important distinction between financial salesmen and fiduciary advisers
