Market mayhem spooked investors at the beginning of October.
The S&P 500 Index plunged nearly 4% in a matter of days and continued to show extreme volatility throughout the week.
Many investors are sick of the ups and downs caused by the trade war and other issues. A recent report shows that 20% of Americans are starting to hoard cash.
- The trade war isn’t the only issue on investors’ minds. Quote: “It may be a constitutional crisis. It may be worries of a recession. There are lots of things coming together to increase volatility right now.”
- Computerized trading programs have transformed how hedge funds operate. Quote: “Volatility begets volatility the way these funds are working.”
- Diversification isn’t just about owning a lot of different stocks. Quote: “Use something for the short term. Use an aggressive approach combined with a defensive approach. Add some value.”
