June 29, 2017 | Markets: Triple Digit Jitters Are Back

Adrian Mastracci, Discretionary Portfolio Manager, B.E.E., MBA. My expertise in the investment and financial advisory profession began in 1972. I graduated with the Bachelor of Electrical Engineering from General Motors Institute in 1971. I then attended the University of British Columbia, graduating with the MBA in 1972. I have attained the “Discretionary Portfolio Manager” professional designation. I am committed to offering clients the highest standard of personal service by providing prompt, courteous and professional attention. My advice is objective, unbiased and without conflicts of interest. I’m part of a team that delivers comprehensive services and best value in managing client wealth.

Stock markets are once again feeling the wrath of triple digit jitters. The pipeline is suddenly brimming with risk worries.

For now, a healthy selloff bites investors. Most want to shift to more defensive positions. The fracas may not be finished.

However, triple digit haircuts are to be expected. They are part of the longer term investing journey. All investors have been there.

Markets can rebound as fast as they fall. Sometimes on the same day. What is certain is that nothing is certain in these jittery markets.

I suggest considering these choices:

1. If you’re a short term investor, you have plenty of daily noise to sift through.
There is no shortage of what you might trade before the day is over.

2. If you’re a long term investor, carry on with your game plan.
You could buy some bargains today or just sit out the turmoil.

3. Sell some investments that do not belong in your portfolio.
Buy some that you can live with in the long run asset mix.

Do be careful of what you invest in. These markets are about managing those risks you take.

I’ve always preferred the marathon approach. Just stick on the side of quality.

On days like this, hold your nose and keep it simple. It sure beats worrying about things that you can’t control.

Avoiding knee-jerk decisions is a wise priority.
