With so much buzz in the financial media, it’s important to stay focused on what is relevant to a long-term investor.
- Equity markets have seen a volatile start to the year, with the S&P 500 down as much as 19% from its early January peak at times. A sharp move higher in interest rates on the back of a more hawkish Federal Reserve has pressured valuations.
- Consumer sentiment is at levels typically seen in a recession, rendering a positive outlook for the market going forward
- The market sell-off presents an opportunity to rebalance portfolios, if changes are needed.
