While there are still global issues out there, it is important for investors to stay calm, and not let emotions scare them into doing something imprudent with their portfolios. A globally diversified portfolio has been the greatest wealth creation on earth, and those that ‘fight’ the forces will be eaten up.
Investors often forget that ‘yesterday’s losers are tomorrow’s winners.’ So what does a smart investor do in a market downturn? If you’re being coached well, you know it’s a buying opportunity!! And when the ‘loser’ becomes a ‘winner’- you have more shares making you more money. Investors need to plan on where the market IS going, not where it is right now. The market has gone up 100% of the time, so investors should take downturns as ‘a blimp’ and not pay much attention to it. Those who show the fear, are always the first eaten.
