The Cycle of Market Emotions
No one said investing is easy; watching your money fluctuate in value is emotional. Markets go up and down in the short term, a longer time horizon = higher probability of success. Please make decisions based on an investment plan instead of how you feel and enjoy this chart called "The Cycle of Market Emotions."
Historic Market Events & Staying Invested for the Long Term
An investors time horizon will often dictate the probability of success. It is very difficult to predict short-term direction of the markets as there are often unpredictable events in the economy and markets. These events are often short lived but can induce poor investment decisions. The probability of success and positive returns increase substantially, the longer the time frame you have.
