How to Remain Calm in a Tumultuous Market

The stock market can be easily compared to riding a rollercoaster.

It rises, it falls — all with a wild rush.  When the market experiences those dips though, anxiety has a tendency to settle in. In early 2022, the markets dropped sharply, then quickly rebounded.  It’s a wild ride of emotions for people watching their portfolios with frequency.

In this video, Nik Aamlid, CAP®, Wealth Advisor, describes the recent chaotic market place and strategies for remaining calm despite it.

Did you know: Since 1926, the S&P 500 Index has averaged 10.49%*?  This is true, despite experiencing singular years of massive gains and other years of massive losses.

We hope this resource provides you with some insights and context for remaining calm during volatility.

Remember, this is normal.  Stay true to your plan.
