How To Survive a Bear Market Attack

It is no secret that the stock market has been a bumpy road in recent weeks. Any media channel you tune to will highlight the volatile performance of the S&P and Dow Jones. Headlines like, “Dow Plunges More Than 650 Points as Apple Flashes Warning Signs” are quickly followed by, “Stocks Surge After Blowout Jobs Report.” For investors, the undulating market performance can be nauseating.

As we traverse what is, most likely, a bear market, we want to make sure that our Money Guy Show fans and Abound Wealth clients don’t make short-term decisions that can derail long-term financial goals. Therefore, be sure to tune in to this week’s episode to find out what to do if a bear market attacks.

In today’s episode, we cover the facts and data about market performance that helps put all the headlines into perspective and can help you sleep easier at night. Equip yourself with the knowledge that can prevent you from making irrational, short-term decisions that could derail your retirement.
