For many people investing their money is scary and overwhelming, especially for beginners. The thought of potentially losing hard earned money is too much for many people to bear. However, there are people, like Ted Bauman, who dedicate careers to helping the average person navigate the complicated world of investing.

Ted Bauman gained his experience as an economist, not by a formal education, but by real life experiences. In the 1980s Bauman moved to South Africa, where he became involved and enamored with the application of post-apartheid economic policy. After being involved in this work in various ways, through the 1990s and 2000s Bauman worked as a consultant to the African and European governments and the United Nations. While serving as a consultant, he traveled extensively through Africa and Asia, which, gave him knowledge about the relationships and economic dynamics between different societies. Ted Bauman didn’t return to the United States until 2008 when he became the Director of International Programs for a non-profit organization. Subsequently, he joined Banyan Hill Published company in 2013 where he is editor of The Bauman Letter, Smart Money, and Alpha Stock Alert.

Recently, Ted Bauman gave three possible outcomes of a stock market crash and three ways that those investments can be protected. In order to understand how investments can be protected, we need to know the dangers investments face in the event of a crash. First, a crash and bounce; second, a yield curve recognition; and, third, a return to the average ratio. None of which are ideal for investors.

However, according to Ted Bauman, there are three ways that investments can be protected. First, it is critical that investors create a wall of protection around their investments. This is best accomplished by going for a long-term plan. Second, invest in stocks and bonds. Typically, bonds are less risky than stocks; however, historically speaking, stocks and bonds have served as a protection to many investment portfolios. Third, if there is a sudden crash, try to wait it out, because, eventually, the market will pick back up.
