February 2020 – Another exciting trading day took place on this beautiful sunny day. Given all this volatility it’s important to remember that we have experienced many disruptive events like this in the past and that there is no reason to panic or freak out. Focus on the facts and not the media’s sensationalization of the news. The media’s terminology is scaring the public unnecessarily. Don’t obsess and get tempted to make this short term decline something permanent that you can’t recover from. My advice? Talk to your professional wealth advisor. Turn off the news. Go for a walk. Pour yourself a glass of wine (or dram of good scotch). Watch a good movie or read a good book. Pet your dog. Enjoy some ice cream. Better days are ahead. Really.
