In case you missed it, market volatility is back.
On January 26th, we saw the stock market go from hitting a record high to being down 10% (a.k.a. the definition of a market correction) in nine days.
Here’s the thing: stock market corrections are normal. They happen about once every year. What’s not normal is how quickly this one happened.
The LA Times reported that this is the first time in history we have seen a correction happen that fast. The speed at which this stock market correction occurred is a good reminder that the market doesn’t always go up. If you aren’t prepared for market turbulence and you aren’t invested properly, you could be putting your retirement in jeopardy.
