Did you lose money in the two bear markets during the last decade?
Two questions can help you establish your risk comfort level:
First Question: How would your lifestyle change if you had a 30 to 50 percent GAIN in your investment portfolio?
Some people respond that they might spend or travel a little more or just feel more secure. Nothing will dramatically change.
Second Question: How would your lifestyle change if you had a 30 to 50 percent LOSS in your investment portfolio?
Some people respond that they would be devastated or have to move to a smaller home or drop a club membership or some other dramatic change. The loss has a dramatic change in their mindset and lifestyle.
This is the primary reason why Affluent Americans are far more concerned with protecting what they accumulated rather than chasing a risky possible high rate of return.
