Recent market volatility in December 2018 has risen to higher levels. During periods of upside market volatility, investors’ concerns are absent. However, things tend to change when the markets are moving down. Feelings of fear are very normal in today’s world, but we have new information to help guide us.

In recent years, market history and knowledge has progressed. Yet, too many investors ignore the data and react when the market changes direction. These impulsive reactions of fear almost certainly lead to outcomes that are not desired or necessary. While investment markets react to the economy, the economy moves much more smoothly than the stock markets as shown in the video. In this video, the evidence is clear that investors who react emotionally, end up making mistakes. These mistakes make achieving goals and dreams more difficult.
