To say that the stock market has been volatile over the last few weeks would be quite an understatement! The S&P 500 peaked at 2,940.91 on September 21st and dropped to 2,710.51 on October 11th; a decline of 7.5% in three weeks. The Dow Jones Industrial Average decline happened in an even shorter period. It peaked at 26,951 on October 3rd and dropped to 24,900 on October 11th. A decline of 2,051 points or 7.6% in a week! Granted, we have seen some recovery but we are still well off of the
the 2007; the last cycle peak. Yet the value of the S&P 500 has nearly doubled during that period (187%!). And the NASDAQ Composite has nearly tripled (280%!).
Most of us save money for our retirement days as there are fewer and fewer pension plans in place, particularly in the private sector. Which of course means that we will rely on Social Security and our accumulated savings to provide an income after we are no longer employed. So, I would like to share some thoughts on increasing the chances for a successful retirement. And by that, I mean a retirement where you can maintain your lifestyle without the fear of running out of money.
