Weathering Market Volatility
Periods of market volatility – especially pullbacks – can trigger emotional responses in investors. You may feel upset or worried. It happens. And it’s normal. Here are some key points to remember when it comes to investing:
- The markets are historically cyclical with periods that trend up and down.
- Over time a study of the stock market shows its resilience.
- The upturns have always been stronger than the downturns in the long run.
- Dollar-cost averaging can help take advantage of volatility.
- Balanced portfolios may help reduce overall risk.
- Pullbacks and corrections may be buying opportunities.
Market volatility is an inevitable part of investing in the markets. That’s why the best response is to contact a financial advisor to find out what the numbers really mean. You may want to discuss the cause of market volatility and how long it might last, what impact it has on your current portfolio, what effects it might have on your financial plan and goals, how to plan ahead and take advantage of opportunities.
