Financial Insider Shares Tips for Investors After Dow Hits Record

Checks and Balances TV
Smart investing is not simply about risking money, but about protecting your wealth while allowing it to grow.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed above 15,000 for the first time on Tuesday. The Dow has gained 15 percent so far this year, the fastest start to any year since 1999. The jump into record territory is attributed to multiple factors, including a steady stream of buying, particularly by individual investors who are entering the market for the first time since the financial crisis. A slight improvement in Europe’s economy excited Wall Street too. In his upcoming book, All the Rules Have Changed: What You Must Do to Succeed in the New Financial Reality, Matt Rettick addresses rollercoaster markets in chapter nine, “Invest Like a Pro: Grow Your Wealth Wisely While Reducing Taxes and Fees.”

While the prospect of a rebounded market may inspire many to invest again, Rettick warns that there’s no guarantee the upswing will continue. “Americans often buy into volatile investments because of the prospect of big returns,” said Rettick, “but they’re unprepared for the losses that could result too.” Smart investing, he adds, is not simply about risking money, but about protecting your wealth while allowing it to grow.

To help educate Americans about long-term investing while growing and protecting wealth, Rettick is offering his free report – “The Truth About Average Stock Market Returns” – that gives Americans the facts about “the average rate of return” of the stock market and what they should really consider when investing, available on his website, http://www.ChecksandBalances.TV.

Rettick, the visionary and host of Checks and Balances TV, is an accomplished author, recognized educator, sought-after speaker and advocate for personal finance and “longevity planning” for retirement. He has been featured on several national television programs including NBC’s Today, Fox & Friends, Fox Business and more. Rettick also co-authored the book Fiscal Fitness: 8 Steps to Wealth and Health from America’s Leaders of Fitness and Finance with the late famed fitness guru Jack LaLanne. Fiscal Fitness is dedicated to teaching Americans how to gain and maintain control of their physical and financial well-being and improve their quality of life, both now and as they age. His second book, All The Rules Have Changed: What You Must Do to Succeed in the New Financial Reality is due out Summer 2013.
