The past 15 months have been a terrific time to be an investor, however, the past 15 days have been far more turbulent.
It can be painful to see those losses in your portfolio but during times like these, we encourage you to remember these core investing principles:
- Be a long-term investor: Plan to hold stocks for at least 5-10 years.
- Be a diversified investor
- Be a patient investor: Understand that markets fall on average 10% once per year.
- Be a committed investor: Have a plan and follow it.
