Guidance Through Market Volatility

December 28, 2018

As you may already know, December has been a tough month for investors, one of the most challenging we have seen in decades. These are the moments when we like to provide as much education as possible to help remind you that these investments are long term in nature and while the markets will "ebb and flow" we believe it is prudent to stay the course. Over the next week or two, we will be sending information to provide data to back up this philosophy, as well as commentary and market outlooks for 2019.

As always, if you are nervous or concerned and want to talk things through, please call, that's what we are here for! Thank you for your continued trust in our team and stay tuned over the next few weeks as we deliver what we hope is very useful information.

To start things off, the link below refers to a great article titled "Don't Fear The (Market) Reaper." It's a great piece overall but, specifically, I like how it compares investors who stayed invested through the 2008-2009 market volatility vs those who got out (and tried to get back in).
