Recent Market Volatility
I’m excited to be back after my wedding, so I wanted to start my blog back up on an important note which is market volatility. For those of you who are long time investors and for those just starting your investment experience, volatility can be worrisome and stressful. I’m not here to tell you that everything will be fine and there’s no need to worry, as this is a good time to take a look at your investments and make sure that the strategy being employed still matches with your investment goals. However, volatility has historically made up a decent portion of the existence of the stock market and should be seen as a natural part of the investment experience. So in that vein, I wanted to share a video from Dimensional Fund Advisors on how volatility plays a role in the natural movement of the stock market and why it’s not usually a good idea to abandon ship.
For those who are stressed out about the recent drops in the market, contact me and I’d be happy to review your current strategy and ease your fears.
