Gut Check - Now that the market is high, it may be time to revisit the risk

| October 03, 2017

One of the hardest parts of investing, other than making the money to put to work is controlling one's emotions when times are scary.

Preparing yourself in advance to be aware of the risks is a great way to reduce anxiety, and prepare yourself to make wise decisions and to stick with a disciplined plan.

Each year the stock market drops about 14% at one point.  However, despite this fact, it ends up more times than down.  This is due not only to the dividends that are paid in both up and down markets, but also the growth and profits of the companies driving higher prices over time.

Depending on your goals and timeframe, a certain amount of market risk will be required to achieve the growth you need to meet your goals.  We have the ability to show you the likely range of returns for your portfolio over the next 6 months, as well as what it might do during good and bad periods.

Please reach out to us if you would like to review your level of risk.  Making adjustments now while the market is near all-time highs is much more desirable than learning you want less risk when the market is down.

More importantly, it can brace you for normal fluctuations and improve your investing experience, and possibly results.

Above is a sample of the range analysis over the next six month for a portfolio we reviewed recently.
