Investors who actively participated in the stock market following the Great Recession were fortunate to experience the longest running bull market (a market in which share prices are rising, encouraging buying) in history, starting on March 9, 2009.
Bull markets are a great opportunity, but they are usually short lived. The stock market itself has a natural life cycle that is destined to encounter peaks and valleys. One of the keys to investing is to not making any rash decisions based on those peaks and valleys. Those scenarios frequently are preceded by events that impact market fundamentals or economic events, such as:
•Changes in interest rates
•New international trade negotiations, treaties and tariffs
•Fluctuating levels in the national debt
•Political controversies that impact national policies
•Global events that threaten economic stability
•Dramatic news headlines that shape investor sentiment
While each of these issues, and certainly all of them combined, generate cause for concern, it’s important to remember that we have been in similar circumstances before; we will be there again; and in between, we will experience more periods of economic and investment prosperity.
