The Latest Prices for August 2019 are updated!
Last month I talked about stock markets peaking and the potential of the wine market turning very bullish. The Major stock market indices lost around 3% or more 2 days ago and suffered their worst losses of the year on Monday.
Last month the wine market was sluggish for sellers, buyers are keen to buy but only entering if prices are lowered substantially. This is usually a sign of the calm before the storm. It looks like we could be on the cusp of some serious growth in the fine wine investment market. So get ready for the ride, and don’t forget to arm yourself with the ammunition and make sure you are in the wine market BEFORE prices escalate.
I see it so many times, investors buying when prices are up and trying to sell when prices are down. The way to go is the complete opposite. Maybe our personal circumstances hold us back in this strategy at times.
If you are a seller, try to wait for better times, hold off selling for now if you can. When you see a 2-month rally, then put your wine for sale.
If you are a buyer, Now is the time you should be at your most aggressive, buy what you can now, remain diverse with what you add to your portfolio. In June we saw the wine market drop, last month activity was slow, however, we have seen a rise in the market in July, similarly, the London Vintners exchange saw a rise of 0.5% for the Index 1000.
If you have friends who made a lot of money in the stock market in the last 2 years, please send them this update and ask them to start investing in wine. It would be a wise move to protect the gains they made in the stock market. Giving friends wise advice is what good friends do. There are some great wine investment opportunities out there and I’m here to help you to be on the right side of the market.
