STOCKS

By Terry Savage on October 21, 2013 | Investments

HI TERRY, IT’S OCTOBER 2ND. I SAW YOU ON THE NEWS THIS MORNING ON WGN. PLAIN AND SIMPLE, SHOULD I GET OUT OF THE STOCK MARKET WITH WHAT’S LOOMING ON THE HORIZON.

SINCERELY, JOE

SAVAGE SAYS:Plain and simple, I never make a recommendation without knowing a person’s complete financial situation.  And if you plan to live at least  20 years, I would typically suggest that you keep at least some money in a diversified, conservative stock fund — unless you can’t risk losing a penny.  In that case, it belongs with “chicken money” — in safe, secure CDs — which are unlikely to match or beat inflation these days, since the Fed has it’s finger/hand on the scale of interest rates!
