Markets are at all-time highs in spite of recent events. Joe and Al share smart investment strategies you can learn from past performance and give advice for investing in a bull market versus a bear market.

2:33 “If you’re invested in the stock market today, the question is: now what? Should you keep your money in the market? If you’ve been sitting on the sidelines sitting in cash, is it a good time to jump in?”

3:23 “Trying to time the market is a fool’s game, not to mention pretty dangerous.”
