THERE’S A REASON VOLATILE MARKETS MAKE INVESTORS UNCOMFORTABLE
Wide swings in prices create uncertainty, and uncertainty stirs feelings of doubt and insecurity. But in free markets, where prices are dynamic, not static, volatility is unavoidable. And it is in volatility that investors can find opportunity. How? History tells us down periods usually are followed by up periods (and vice versa); continuing to invest during slumps tends to add to future potential returns; and a portfolio diversified across asset classes can provide the potential for positive returns in any global environment. In sum, long-term diversified investors needn’t fear volatility.
