That is a very good and very relevant question. The most important imperative in volatile times is not to lose perspective on your long-term financial plan. Remember, stock markets have done extremely well over the long run. If you consider the last 15-20 years, those who have held on to stocks or equity mutual funds have made a huge pile of money. This is despite the 5-6 bouts of volatility that these investments have had to go through. The moral of the story is that even as you make your short-term plans to handle volatility, don’t lose sight of your long-term financial goals. Volatility is part and parcel of participating in the market. As smart investors, you need to do your best to protect yourself against volatility. Above all, don’t let this volatility gloss over your long-term goals!
