In 2017, we experienced one of the most 'calm' year of market conditions in history. Stocks steadily went up, with very little downside. One question we posed in our 1st Quarter Market Update video in January was: "When would volatility return?"
It has only taken the first quarter of 2018 to answer that question. Volatility is back in the markets. We experienced one of the best January's in history, followed by one of the quickest market corrections (10% drop) on record in February, occurring in only 13 days. Many investors are left scratching their heads with these quick, sudden moves we've seen over the past few months.
- Should I fear the recent correction in the markets?
- Should What does volatility really mean for my retirement goals ans should I be making adjustments to my investments?
- What could/should drive markets going forward?
