Investing in Megatrends - Industries that are Shaping Our Future

Featured Image

More Volatility

Market volatility stayed elevated last week as interest rates made a move higher, a government shutdown loomed, and a major infrastructure deal hangs in the balance. Yet, the market is still less than 5% down from its all-time highs. Since we spent 220 plus days straight less than 5% from the highs, (S&P 500) it is natural that the first bout of volatility catches some of us off guard and causes us to make irrational decisions. Let's make sure that if this much volatility gets us feeling nervous,  we gut-check our portfolios.
