Getting In & Getting Out
We are often asked the same question by many clients during times of extreme market volatility.
Why don’t we get out of the market and jump back in when it starts going back up?
It’s a great question, but we’ve never wavered in our response. The market doesn’t move in a linear fashion, often contradicting the news being reported. Moving all of your investments to cash and then trying to get back in when things appear to be moving up is riskier than maintaining an appropriate risk of investments. Just missing the 10 best market days each year can significantly affect your rate of return.
We help our clients create a plan they can stick to even when the market is volatile.
