Global market volatility has escalated in recent months and shows no signs of abating. Find out what you can do to help mitigate its impact on your investments
Global market volatility ramped up last summer as worries about the tenuous state of the Chinese economy shook virtually all major financial benchmarks, indicating once again how interrelated the world's economies and investment markets have become.
Widespread uncertainty has not only heightened anxiety among investors, it was also a likely contributor to the Federal Reserve's decision to leave interest rates near zero when the Central Bank's decision-makers met in September. Indeed, despite the continued strengthening of the U.S. economy, there are many signs that indicate that this turbulent period for stocks may linger indefinitely.
Five Investing Strategies for a Volatile Market - For long-term investors, dealing with volatile markets can be taxing. Here are some points you may want to consider while riding out the storm. None of these should be new to you, but they are particularly important in a turbulent environment, which is where their true value is realized.
No one is certain what impact current drivers of volatility will ultimately have on the economy and financial markets. But as an investor, time may be your best ally. Consider using it to your advantage by sticking to your plan and focusing on the future.
