How to Make Money in a Bear Market

Bear growling

After a staggering 11 year bull run, the stock market has finally come crashing down. Not since the financial crisis of 2008 have we seen a panic like this.

Since Feb. 19, 2020 the benchmark stock index for US business, the S&P 500, has sunk from a high of 3,393 to a low of just 2,734 on March 9. This represents a stunning drop of 19.4% in just three weeks.

So let’s get to the pressing question on every investor’s mind: unless you own a toilet paper manufacturing company, how can you possibly make money in this bear market?
