As an investor, there are several important investment principles to remember during a period of market volatility. A few of these principles include:
Focus on your long-term investment goals and not on how to avoid a short-term downturn. The market will fluctuate up and down over time. Remembering to focus on the long term will help to minimize your concerns about daily fluctuations.
Investing in a variety of stocks and bonds can help you reduce the risk associated with putting all of your eggs in one basket.
Regular investing through a periodic investment plan allows you to buy more shares when the price is low and less shares when the price is high – helping you reduce the average cost of fund shares over a long period of time. This process of regular investing, when used regardless of fluctuating price levels, is called dollar-cost averaging. This can be done easily with a periodic investment plan with State Farm®.
It will not assure a profit or protect you from a loss. It's simply a way to average out the cost of fund shares as the market fluctuates when investing for the long-term.
Automatic investment plans do not assure a profit or protect against loss.
Diversification does not assure a profit or protect against loss.
