Market Turmoil And Recovery Time

Markets rise, fall, and rise again. Looking back at past turmoil, we have the 1987 crash, the Asian crisis, the Russian crisis, 9/11, the oil embargo of the early 1970’s.

Each decline brought on panic and despair as we watched our savings decline and the media didn’t help with their 24 hour a day coverage of the unfolding events. The knots in our stomach were the same regardless of what prompted the decline.

They have recovered in time and a few companies including Fidelity have been kind enough to provide a volatility calculator where you can look at domestic or international markets and see how they reacted after a market decline. 

The drops you have been seeing lately go beyond the fundamental values of individual companies and buying support will come back into the market.  Here is a link to the calculator where you can view the results of past market declines. 

Should you have any comments or concerns, we would be happy to hear from you.
