Publisher's Summary

Do you have a repeatable investing process to help you manage your portfolio in arguably the most uncertain market environment in history?

With 47.25 million unemployment claims in the US alone, household names like Hertz, Neiman Marcus, and J.C. Penney declaring bankruptcy, and the Fed’s balance sheet now sitting at over $7 trillion, a full-blown recession is now a matter of when, and not if.

Now, the average person loses 33 percent of their wealth in a recession. And in the 2008 financial crisis, the stock market dropped a whopping 57 percent in just two years. Which means, if you’re relying on the market or a pension fund for your nest egg, you need to be prepared for what is coming.

Fortunately, inside this book, we lay out the straight facts (spoiler alert: there is no V-shaped recovery) as well as giving you practical advice on how to protect and even grow your wealth in a recession. Because, in the seed of crisis comes great opportunity.

Investing legend Porter Stansberry (who correctly predicted the demise of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and General Motors) said this about the current times we’re in: “Now is an unbelievable opportunity to establish a position in high-quality 'forever' businesses.”

Here’s just a fraction of what you’ll discover inside:

  • If you currently have even a single ounce of gold or silver stored in a bank safe deposit box, it is at risk of being legally confiscated by the US government. This sounds absurd, but it’s happened before. Learn why.
  • How to get all the protection of owning US government bonds with nothing more than your regular brokerage account.
  • Two “beginner friendly” low-risk options strategies to protect your portfolio and gain extra monthly income.
  • The number one asset to own during a market crash. And no, it’s not gold, silver, or Bitcoin.
  • Are you making this gold buying mistake? You should never buy gold this way, but it’s exactly what most new investors do.
  • How to avoid getting swindled by the next Bernie Madoff. The four tell-tale signs of fraudulent investment operators.
  • The “bargain hunter” problem. How ordinary investors lost over $500 million betting on oil prices and how you can avoid the same fate.
  • The number one gold Investment you can make today. During the last gold bull market, this investment grew more than 500 percent. This time, it’s poised to go even higher.
  • Should you include cryptocurrency in your portfolio? If yes, which ones?
  • The three industries hit hardest in a bear market. If too much of your portfolio is in these sectors, you’re at risk of massive losses.
  • One thing every investor should know about inverse ETFs.
  • How the “Warren Buffett of Short Selling” makes his investments.
  • A unique way to buy your favorite blue chip stocks like Coca-Cola, Microsoft, or Amazon at massive discounts.
  • And much, much more.

Plus $135 worth of free bonuses inside.

We’re not doom-and-gloomers, but we are realists. These next 18-24 months are not going to be pretty.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Not a whole bunch on crypto

The book lists crypto as a section but it’s the smallest and worst section in the book. If you’re looking for bear market crypto advice, this book isn’t for you.

Was expecting something else

The content is very basic. It repeats mantras that are widely known.

I was expecting more from such a book, such as covering position sizing, stop loss strategies, etc.

Furthermore, this book is available as a bundle in "Stock Investing for Beginners: Value Bundle" so if you're interested, the bundle is a better buy.

Market Investing Strategies (Bear Market Optional)

Ten or fifteen years ago I read a book on investing in Bear Markets and it was eye-opening. I was hoping for an updated book like that. This is not that book. This covers all of investing with some mentions of Bear markets. They could change 10% of the words and sell Boom Time Market Investing Strategies. That said, I listened all the way through and it reminded me of many things I already knew and a few new things.

Helpful tips but biased

I liked that they went had some relevant information but they’re pretty biased in what they recommend rather than giving multiple different investment strategies

Major Information Here

Bear Market Investing Strategies really makes you want to seize the day, jammed packed with helpful tips even for the novice investor like me. I found the book to be engaging and timely, a great tool to filter through the noise of investing. Just the other day a friend was pushing the thought of investing in GOLD, I will definitely recommend they read this book.

The free video course is a great tool that I will use. I no longer feel like a beginner after listening to this audiobook.

Pretty dull and nothing amazing to learn from this book. Skipped a lot of it because it was all a bit too basic

smart collection of financial strategies for you

What I have always heard from various investing advisers was: diversify your wallet.
This basic piece of advice is even more valid in the times of financial crisis. In this book you find a smart collection of strategies that can help you secure or multiply your savings.
(4 stars for the performance cause I’m not a fan of this voice... but I got used to;)

thorough and detailed

I have had an interest in investing for a long time but even I had a preconception for a long time that a crash was bad for all involved, but this book has helped open my eyes to the opportunity of crashes as a once in a decade opportunity to massively increase your wealth. But I know that this is not a simple task and thankfully reading this book has given me some great ideas to incorporate and the confidence that I can see some results

Practical, Well-Informed, Simple

Considering the amount of mixed messaging from seasoned investors and market analysts, it's difficult to know what position to take in the current market. Traditional investing approaches the market from the bulls' perspective, but I figured given the future economic and political uncertainty, I figured I might as well be prepared for the worst. With that in mind, I bought this audiobook.


Bear Market Investing Strategies lays out the process, and how-to's of setting up shorts, and what to look for in a bear market to take advantage of opportunities to profit. The narrator is even toned, and articulate and lays out each point in an easy to understand way. After reading I definitely feel more prepared to enter into a potential bear market with a strategy to profit.

Investment strategies in uncertain times

An interesting take on current global investment strategies. In these 'difficult' and 'uncertain' economic times, it is important to keep apprised of the changes in investment strategies - the 37 recession-proof ideas give the listener different angles to the standard approaches normally spouted by the mainstream financial media.

I noted with particular interest the section on wealth preservation and hedging against the likelihood of inflation or even hyperinflation using gold. This audiobook is not filled with technical, financial terms and can be absorbed by anyone with even a passing interest in the subject.

I recommend this book to anyone who wants to keep half a step or more ahead of the rest of the economic mob - don't be left holding unprofitable or even worthless assets when everyone else rushes for the exit.

Great resource for down markets

Though we aren’t currently in a bear market, we can never really know when we’ll fall into one. Thankfully, this book offers countless great ways to prepare for such market conditions, whenever they may arise.

It features 37 recession-proof ways to protect and grow your wealth, and it reframes the idea of a bear market, showing you that tough times in the markets are actually the times when the most money is made.

With the help of the ideas presented in this book, as well as the connections it makes to human psychology, I think all listeners of it will be much better prepared to succeed, financially, the next time a bear market emerges.

Great read!

Being a beginner in this topic, it's wasn't easy to choose the right book for me. But I'm glad I picked the one from Freeman Publications. This book is filled with very thoroughly researched material about bear markets and is definitely a great guide on what to do when the markets start shifting again. And in this day and age, I'm afraid it won't be a matter of if but when..

Freeman Publications definitely know what they are talking about and always write books with honesty and great knowledge. Lots of practical advice given on how to protect your wealth in a recession.

Love the free bonuses as well!
