AngelMay,If you have a properly structured portfolio and cash position, it will carry you through a 3 year event easily without requiring any sale of distressed assets. Normally you should have a 5 year cushion of cash/near-cash to pay expenses, a CD or bond ladder or some other method that preserves value.Now the articles: I have read too many articles about impending doom and gloom over the years. A couple actually did correctly pick an event to some extent. I count that more as shotgun forecasting. If you continually predict a market drop, over and over again, you can claim success when the .13% of the prognostications is actually correct.I make cash/near-cash in times like this, rising markets. I keep enough on hand to weather a storm. It worked more than fine in the 2007 to 2010 sag.Gene
