The phrase is neither Chinese nor is it a blessing, but is ironic and meant as a curse. Almost daily, we experience another surprising news event. Whether expected, like politicians ranting, or unexpected like BREXIT, these can affect our lives and the market. The full effects of BREXIT may not be known for some time to come. What are we to do about this when our best intentions are impacted?
In times of uncertainty first impulses may not be the best to follow. A well-prepared plan can shield you from fluctuations.
What we need to learn is that a long-range plan is the best defense against events that affect the future. There is less need to react to the market if you have already planned with the ups and downs in mind.
Whether you’re into the market and other investments, large or small, we are all affected. A certified financial planner (CFP) can help smooth out the bumps and help you react and even better plan.
