The importance of remaining invested

The importance of remaining invested

The rewards to be had by buying and selling stocks at just the right time are obvious. Everyone wants the best possible returns. But nobody has a crystal ball, no matter what some experts might tell you.

The very nature of global markets means that they can change quickly. With that comes risk, especially the risk of getting things wrong.

Logic Wealth Planning sits down with clients and discusses the importance of fully understanding risk. We are all different, with different goals and objectives.

Choosing what level of risk you are comfortable with helps you to plan. That means identifying a goal that will be achieved over many years, not by short-term gambles.

Under pressure, however, when others make investment changes, it’s hard not to act. After all, we all want to protect what we have spent time building up. Seeing markets drop quickly concerns anyone who is invested.

Making the wrong choice at the wrong time could mean long-term pain. Pulling out of certain markets because prices have fallen could mean missing out crucial periods of growth.

Markets do recover. How long that recovery takes can vary, and it can happen over several periods. The last thing you need is to miss any of the substantial periods of growth.
