Are You Checking Your Investments Daily And Worried About Your Financial Future?

5027 1

After flirting with a -20% decline from its record high price, which would have placed it in bear market territory, the stock market, as measured by the Standard & Poor’s 500 index, has bounced back – for now.

The drop in stock prices could resume, however. Inflation, Russia, and the pandemic are wild cards and any one of them could send stocks tumbling again. It’s a time of high financial anxiety.

2022 has been a bad year for investors. Since hitting a record closing-price high on January 3rd of 4,796.56, the S&P 500 index closed today at 4088.85 – 15% lower than its all-time high. Meanwhile, the 12-month Inflation rate hit a 40-year high last month, and a Europe ban on buying Russian could send oil and gas prices higher and exacerbate Covid-related supply chain problems further hindering consumer spending, which drives 80% of the U.S. economy.

Times like these heighten financial stress and bring out the worst traits in some investors.
