When volatility increases, many investors become uncomfortable and may consider making changes to their investments.
Anytime we have a significant concern, it is essential we take a step back and assess the situation with the proper perspective.
Normal, Not Easy
Volatility, while uncomfortable, is a normal and natural part of stock markets. It has always occurred, and we can expect it will continue to occur.
Volatility is the price investors pay for equity-like returns. But that doesn’t mean it is easy.
Whenever we see bold headlines and declining markets, we can become worried, anxious, and even fearful. These emotions can influence us to make unwise investment decisions.
Do Not Look
Therefore, one of the best ways to survive volatility, is to simply choose to not look.
Paraphrasing Warren Buffett, “The market is an efficient mechanism that transfers wealth from the impatient to the patient and disciplined investor.”
We can best survive the occasional storms of market volatility by mentally preparing for it to occur, ignoring it when it occurs, and exercising patience and discipline during the tough times.
