1. Take a class at ARC on financial analysis. Get to know the teacher or a student and learn how to analyze a company’s ability to survive and thrive in a down market.
2. Concurrently build up a savings account to fund your purchases
3. Wait for the right time (always based on what you actually see and on fundamentals), best when the market crashes especially if the dollar skyrockets, pushing commodities lower. Buy natural gas and oil when they are at bloodbath lows.
4. Buy and hold and/or trade around the subsequent increase.
