Market Volatility = Opportunity?

July 05, 2022
It probably comes as no surprise that market performance for the first half of 2022 is down. All major markets fell, including the Dow Jones Industrial Average (Dow) which was down 16%, the S&P 500 which lost 21% and NASDAQ Composite Index (NASDAQ) posted losses of 30%. 
What is lesser known is where markets tend to go from here. One of our strategic partners, Russell Investments, provides the context to market recoveries after significant downturns. This chart illustrates the average recovery from market lows.
It may be too soon to know if we have hit the bottom of our current pullback, but we do know that markets rebound and likely reward investors who stick with their disciplined investment approach.
