Market Volatility and You
Accepting volatility when investing is essential for an investor's long-term success.
We all know recessions are a part of the normal business cycle and with it downtimes in the market. Check out this one-pager from Dimensional which illustrates the time of recovery for most bear markets. If you want to take action when the markets become volatile, the only action I recommend is repositioning between asset classes and buying. Specifically, regarding repositioning your portfolio, I am not advocating wide swings from stocks to cash, but from one equity asset class to another. For example; moving from growth-oriented stocks to value stocks.
