(VIDEO) Market Volatility (Part 3): No One Knows When Declines Will Come

Welcome back to Part 3 of this 5-part Market Volatility Series. If you missed Parts 1 & 2, then I encourage you to watch those videos. In Part 1, I discussed that this recent market decline is not as bad as people are making it out to be. And in Part 2, I discuss that it’s normal and necessary for markets to decline and that this recent volatility shouldn’t concern you. You can find the links to those videos directly below this video.

In Part 3 today, you’ll learn two things. First is that just because the stock market has reached a new high doesn’t mean that the market will decline. In fact, it’s generally the opposite. And second, no one truly knows when the stock market declines will come. People will say they know, but in reality they don’t.

(VIDEO) Market Volatility (Part 1): Tune Out the Noise

In light of the recent / significant volatility that the stock market has experienced, I decided to put together a series of videos addressing it.

I know the volatility has created a lot of angst and concern for people. We’ve been hearing from clients whether or not they should make a change to their portfolios. Those who are in retirement are extra concerned since they are taking money out of a declined portfolio.

It’s for these reasons that I wanted to address the market volatility. So, over the next 5 business days I will be sending out a video blog addressing the recent market declines. Each day will be a bite-sized reason discussing why I’m not concerned and why you shouldn’t be concerned either. Today’s topic is on “Tuning Out the Noise” so that you can “hear” that these recent stock market declines are not as bad as people are making them out to be!
