Cryptocurrency Vs stocks’ Big Q: What’s the better choice?
The Big A: Both
As you are thinking about reconstructing your portfolio, you do not have to make an either-or choice between cryptocurrency and stocks or other kinds of asset such as bonds or funds. It is about weighting your portfolio in a way that fits your risk and time horizon.
- Given its risks, cryptocurrency works better with a mild allocation in your overall portfolio. Think 15 to 20%.
- That allocation may do wonders for your portfolio as cryptocurrency’s have off. Also, limiting to a mild allocation protects you against a complete loss if crypto collapses.
- If crypto grows to be a significant portion of your portfolio, you can re-allocate more of your money to a 50-50 stance that can include ETFs in crypto and stocks.
- Given stocks’ strong long-term record, a diversified collection of stocks should make up the majority of your portfolio, especially if you have decades until you need to tap it.
- If you’re investing in individual stocks, you will need to research your stocks carefully to achieve good returns, follow us for the professional Knightsbridge insights
- If you are investing in funds, you can buy a broadly diversified fund such as an S&P 500 index fund without significant research and enjoy the potential for high returns.
Cryptocurrency has soared in price, but investors need to understand what they are investing in, instead of just rushing in because other traders are.
So, if you decide to take a stake in crypto, consider how it fits with your own risk tolerance and financial needs.
Have a prosperous week, Keep the Faith!
