How to escape from the speculative bubble?

You have an estate and you have placed it on the stock market. As we are writing this article, stock market values are soaring. You could say that everything is fine. However, you feel uneasy. Your intuition tells you that everything could collapse like a house of cards. And your wealth could be reduced to a mere pittance. You don't know how to escape from the stock market's speculative bubble. We have a solution for you, so that you can regain your peace of mind. We are Art Trading & Finance and we also believe that today's sharp rise in the stock market is worrying. There is however a good countermeasure to this surge in shares prices, a surge that is not in line with reality. First of all, let's look at the context in order to understand the cure to apply.

How to escape from the speculative bubble?

Since March 2020 and the confinement of many nations, one of the only human activities that seems to have remained economically healthy is the speculative activity. Completely out of touch with the real economy, the stock market is soaring to dizzying heights. How can we fail to see it as a speculative bubble in the making and, above all, how can we escape it?

Let’s recall the dark years of 2007, 2008 and the following years, with the subprime crisis. Everything that seemed solid until then was crumbling in our hands. That's when AAA-rated securities, even though they were backed by real estate that seemed very concrete, suddenly succumbed. Leaving its buyers dispossessed, literally and figuratively. Most people did not expect it. Caught in the fury of a generalized and blind craze, investors didn’t understand anything anymore.

Today, the situation is even clearer than it was in the subprime era. The economy is drained. Reality seems to be catching up to us faster and faster. And yet, the banner of stock market speculation is waving proudly, seemingly taunting companies that are closing and the arcades emptied of their merchants.

The stock market is a danger for savers

Make no mistake about this: the stock market is now putting your assets at risk. However, you have naturally seen it as a refuge because of its rise to the climax of every stock market investor's dream. A few explanations are necessary at this stage, to help you see more clearly.

In these uncertain times, it is normal to be reassured by indicators that seem reliable. Logically, given today's triumphant figures, an investor who no longer knows how to protect his finances may seek refuge there. Which, at the present time, is really a terrible idea.

The level at which shares have risen is inversely proportional to the collapsing economy. So, beware of the stock market! Just as the subprime crisis was preceded by widespread euphoria, just as the Titanic thought it was unsinkable, the stock market is about to see its bubble burst. No one can say when exactly. But Art Trading & Finance can already tell you that, alas, this will not last much longer.

So, unless you enjoy playing Russian roulette, you'd better get away from this mirage that will soon fade away.

An alternative for your wealth: gold or real estate?

In these troubled times, traditional safe values such as gold or real estate seem risky. The known world is eluding us, slipping through our fingers. This also applies to these famous safe values, which are also becoming a kind of pixie dust.

Indeed, gold is first of all a very speculative and volatile element. For those who want to protect their assets, it is not ideal in these uncertain times. Moreover, gold poses a problem of storage and transport. The more an investor buys gold, the more these delicate issues become important.

As for the purchase of real estate with the sole objective of investing one's assets, it goes without saying that it is risky. When so many companies are going out of business, it would be adventurous to end up with a property that has become unsaleable for a lack of buyers. And what's more, having lost part of its value! The end of the 2000s is a powerful enough memory to ensure that we no longer make the mistake of considering real estate as a refuge.
