In 2018, you’ve noticed a swing in your account values. Should you be concerned? Should you be concerned about market volatility?

People have gotten used to seeing their accounts going up every single month in 2017, but when 2018 came along, with it came market volatility. 

What we’ve seen so far is a pullback in the markets. But it’s okay if you’re apprehensive about the market. When most of us think about market volatility, we think back to 2008 which was a tough situation for many with investments. But the recent market volatility presents a good opportunity to examine your current situation.
