Surviving The Credit Crisis – How Much is Too Much Money to Put in the Stock Market?

Have you ever wanted to invest in the stock market, but it seems just too intimidating?  The corrections that we’ve witnessed in the stock market of over 50% twice in the last decade can leave even the most savvy investor wondering what’s next.  Quantitative easing, the European markets, and other global factors are still causing vigorous and sometimes unexpected fluctuations in the market!  So what’s next?

Join me today as my Guest, Mike Burleigh, President of Peak Capital Management as we discuss everything you need to know if you’re a beginner in the stock market.

A few of the topics we’ll be discussing include:


  • How do you determine the amount of money to put in the stock market?
  • There are so many choices out there, how can you determine which investments are right for You?
  • Is there still momentum in the stock market for people to take advantage of, if they have money to invest?
  • What are bond funds?
  • Are bonds or fixed income investments a better option in a volatile market?
  • And much, much more…


It all depends on where you are at in your investment life cycle.  Are you in your 20’s looking for growth?  Or close to retirement and looking to preserve what you have?  These are questions that you need to ask when evaluating which investments are right for You!
