Podcast January 9, 2012
Even though, from a financial advisor’s point of view, the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index was essentially flat (up less than one percent) in 2011, we witnessed the most volatility in recent memory. However, the volatility might NOT be coming from the daily news that so many feel are driving the markets. In Bear markets (and we are in a secular bear market in 2012), there is (often) a tremendous increase in volatility. But the strange phenomenon about bear markets is they typically finish where they began. A financial advisor can help you understand this concept. We also spend time in the podcast discussing why Mullooly Asset Management does not make market predictions and why predictions about the economy and predictions about the stock market are usually a waste of time.
We encourage our readers and listeners to our podcast to consult with their investment adviser before making a decision to buy or sell any investment.
