Why You Shouldn’t Fret Market Volatility

Market volatility is a common occurrence when it comes to investing.

Over the past 10 years, the S&P 500 index has seen drawdowns of between 5% to 10% almost every year. Some years way more, like in 2020.

But during those drawdowns are where opportunities lie.

Because over the long term, the stock market has gone on to march up higher, despite all the headwinds.

And those short-term drawdowns seem like a non-event if you zoom waaaay out.

So, as long-term investors, we should embrace market volatility instead of fearing it.
