A stock market crash is in the making by banks willing to loan mediocre companies as much cash as they need. But for how long? At some point, even bank’s reserves will run low. When companies no longer have a source to low interest rate financing, the six year stock bubble is going to crash, and it’s going to be loud.
Many companies will be in for a shock when their cash is taken away. They’ll have to learn fast to survive on their own, or they’re going to be declaring bankruptcy. After six year’s time, the stock market crash is coming. It’s just a matter of when.

But value investing can pay off over time. Even in the five year plan, a poorly performing stock may beat out their averages when measured over fifteen years. Companies that adopt a value investment strategy can take advantage of an actively managed fund.
Moving stocks from lofty ones to time-trusted ones can be a good plan. Gold has always been a wise investment choice, holding its own over the years. Yellen has stated that inflation will likely go in up the near future, which is one of the reasons why she wants to increase interest rates. Even during higher inflation, gold still holds its value.
