Market volatility - What now?

Watching volatile stock markets with extreme ups and downs isn’t easy, but history shows that this is normal. It’s important for investors to stay calm and stick to their long-term plan.

Volatility can create opportunity. History has shown that markets tend to recover in less than a year. Since 1928, the S&P 500 has seen 26 bear markets (defined as a drop of 20% or more from the previous high) with an average duration of 289 days.
