Here are a few pieces of advice that will protect your money until 2021:

Be financially ready for emergencies

To get out of recession, emergency cash is the only way out. With liquid cash in your hands, even if you lose your job or face an emergency, you will have something to back on. Don’t rely on borrowing to pay for your immediate needs. If you’re still working, start saving now.

Be on the lookout for surprises

Everyone remembers how global stocks crashed in March. While the market seems to have caught up now, it doesn’t mean it won’t crash again. With the still increasing numbers in Coronavirus patients, it won’t be a surprise if lockdowns are imposed again.

If that happens, companies will have to limit their operations again, causing their stocks to re-fall. The only wise move now is to brace for impacts against market volatility. If you notice an investment losing value, jump out of it without wasting time.

Boost your retirement plan

Don’t think that just because you’re young, you don’t need a retirement plan. My friend, the earlier you plan for your future, the better. A retirement plan has the potential to grow over time and yield more money. With spending habits limited because of the restricted mobility, this is the ideal time to start putting money away in your retirement account.
