Now is the time to start

July 27, 2016

The last decade has been a mine field of disappointment and limited growth around the world, in the stock market, and I believe that the worst is over and behind us.I truly believe this. The recovery has started in the US and is similar to a long line of freight cars on a locomotive. The inertia of getting all the weight moving is hard and arduous, but once the motion starts it is an accelerating monster that when full speed hits, very little can stop it. I believe that the recovery in the US is like that train, and if we are going to get on it you need to step up. I believe that now is the time, more so then we have seen in the last 10 years, to put your money to work.

A great way to do this is to start with an automatic withdrawal on a regular basis from your bank account to your investment account. Please don’t just read this and toss it. My job is to advise you and this is the first time in 10 years that I am encouraged about timing and getting in before the market gets bid up higher. You have been working with me in turbulent markets for the last decade and I truly believe now is the time to see the beaten down regain their value and the new economy to drive our values higher. By investing small amounts regularly in many of the Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and mutual funds that are available to us we will gain the advantage of Dollar Cost Averaging (DCA) , an investment strategy for reducing the impact of volatility on large purchases. In effect, more shares are purchased when prices are low, and fewer shares are bought when prices are high.

If you are already doing this great! Increase your contributions, even if it is just a little bit more because now is the time to do it. If you wait for the market to go higher to start then you are buying into higher risk than when it is lower.

I am sending you the form to complete (click on the word “form” to bring up the form) to start doing this right away. Please do not procrastinate. You have not seen me be this direct and enthused about the future for a very long time.

Capitalize on it and with a bit of luck and plenty of hard work we stand to accomplish our financial objectives.

Please call me toll- free at 1-866-860-4190 or direct at 613-491-3344 as soon as possible to discuss any questions or concerns and I will assist you in getting started.
