The key to investing is staying invested in the markets in spite of the daily headlines. This week’s post is a video post. The 3 minute video shows how $1 invested in the total U.S. stock market grew from 1927 to 2012—as well as what was in the headlines in Time Magazine during this time period.
As you watch the video, think if you would have been able to stay invested with the headlines of doom pending. And staying invested despite the headlines is the requirement necessary for all long-term investors to benefit from the long-term positive trends. Work with an experienced financial planner to help you stay committed to your future.
As the video shows, short-term news events generally have little long-term effect on the market’s continuing growth. Do not place too much focus on the current news items, but pay attention to the long-term trends for a better future for you and the world.
We have two excellent trends to pay attention to which will create additional wealth for investors in publicly traded stocks. We wrote about them earlier in these 2 posts: US Energy Independence and US Farming Revolution.
