    What Goes Up Must Come Down

    What Goes Up Must Come Down

    Ken Greene discusses the process of active investing and how it compares to passive investment strategies. His approach is more hands-on, watching the market daily, as he sees it as a way to relax and keep himself engaged. He underlines the importance of being aware of one's financial position and evaluates the patterns in the stock market to make informed decisions.
    Greene emphasizes that the stock market, whilst a powerful tool for accumulating wealth, can be unpredictable. He expressed his concerns about the rapid rise of the stock market, considering it to be "unnatural". He cautions listeners who have taxable and qualified accounts, especially those nearing retirement, to consider cashing in on their returns and transferring the money to safer assets. He also suggests reevaluating your portfolio with the help of your advisor.

Research & Entrepreneur Extraordinaire!!

Love Ken’s heart to serve people with great content and education on personal finances.

The Engineer of Finance is a podcast you should definitely subscribe to!

Loved having Ken as a guest on our podcast Getting Money Right. I enjoy pointing people to Ken for financial advice and insights, especially on the investment side.

Great information

It’s great to learn everyone’s views in the financial world and I love having a resource that explains other ways to set yourself up for future NOW as I also agree waiting till you’re 59.5 to live is boring and not as much fun!

I give 4 stars because I do wish Ken would improve on staying on topic. He can be tough to follow as he jumps around a lot and goes on tangents then when he does return to what he is talking about he often repeats himself a few times. I’m a total get to the point type of person or I’ll lose interest really fast but otherwise the information is great!
