When the Dow Jones is doing great, the time to invest was yesterday. Now, a blog by Jim Hitt of American IRA points out that using a Self-Directed IRA may never have better timing—not with stocks topping out.

Investors can diversify their portfolio into other asset classes like real estate, precious metals, and private companies. These different investments help serve as a hedge if the public stock market should tank.

Over time, the stock market tends to do well—but when stock markets show signs of topping out, some investors prepare for the future in other ways. That’s the argument that Jim Hitt of American IRA recently made in a recent blog, pointing out that a topped-out stock market can be the ideal time to think about other types of investments with a Self-Directed IRA.

In a Self-Directed IRA, Jim Hitt argues, investors can diversify their portfolio into other asset classes like real estate, precious metals, and private companies. These different investments help serve as a hedge if the public stock market should tank. Using a Self-Directed IRA in this case provides tax benefits for retirement investing that can help bring about returns even when the stock market isn’t necessarily performing well.

“Too many investors these days think about the stock market and nothing else,” says Jim Hitt. “But investing will always include a variety of asset classes from private stock to real estate. And retirement investors need to know that the stock market is not the only option available to them. Investors don’t need to live and die with the performance of the Dow Jones Industrial Average every day.”

Although the year started out on a positive note, Jim Hitt also made the point in his blog that a high Dow Jones Industrial Average could mean that it’s an ideal time to seek out other investment types. “Investing in stocks can be great in the long term,” says Jim Hitt, “and I’m not advocating that anyone put their eggs in one basket. But I am reminding investors that if all of your money is in stocks or even stock funds, you’re still putting all of your eggs in one basket. And that doesn’t always work out well if you don’t have fifty years to wait and see how it goes.”

Jim Hitt points out that there are many retirement investors looking to catch up or hold on to the wealth they’ve already accumulated—and that relying on the stock market to stay high isn’t always the best way to achieve those ends.
