We’ve all heard that time-tested adage, “What goes up must come down.” But what happens when those tall peaks turn into deep wells? It’s more than just a graph showing market movements; it’s also your money.
Look at this brochure from Franklin Templeton, Learning from the Lessons of Time, which contains data about market ups and downs over the past 40 years and some of the world events and headlines that contributed to them. As you’ll see, the data shows us that staying invested tends to generate better outcomes than cashing out or trying to time market swings.
