Will share prices fall

(5 Posts)

A couple of investment products I have have done really well in the last six months after a few years of doing badly. I think this is because share prices have risen. I'm guessing that this is unlikely to continue (Brexit) and am thinking about moving them out and buying premium bonds instead. Any thoughts appreciated.

Premium bonds will get your money hammered by inflation, as will all cash investments.

You might want to research actual share price movements - the stock market went to record highs after the brexit vote because the pound went down, although nowhere near as low as a few years back.

When do you need the money? Is it diversified into a global balanced portfolio?

There's a well known phrase in the financial world that even the fund managers agree with

'It's not the timing of the markets that makes the money it's the time in(vested) that makes the money.

In other words it's very difficult to time when to leave the markets and when to return.

There's another one too - "sell in May and go away"
