Everyone’s emotions tie into their financial decisions in some way. When the market swings, how do you feel? Scared, nervous or sad? Or do you see it as an opportunity to evaluate whether or not your current financial situation is working for you?
It’s easy to get caught up in that feeling of unrest, but keep in mind that just because the market swings, doesn’t mean that your decisions have to. It’s helpful to consult with a CFP® if possible to position yourself to be one of the lucky ones that can ride out these market swings relatively unscathed.
