3 actions to navigate the changing market

Strong market downdrafts driven by coronavirus fears can feel unsettling. Anthony Saglimbene, Ameriprise Global Market Strategist, sums up what to watch for and three actions to take with your advisor to help keep your portfolio on track.

 

 Economic impacts from the coronavirus

Where could global economies be headed amid the outbreak? Russell Price, Ameriprise Chief Economist, sums up the near-term situation and whether it could cause a recession.

 

How can investors mitigate risks and stay on track with their long-term objectives?

Anthony Saglimbene, Ameriprise Global Market Strategist, recaps the key actions that can help you weather a variety of market conditions and achieve your long-term objectives.

 

Stock market performance during and after bear markets

As this chart of the S&P 500® Index illustrates, after the selling pressure of a bear market finally hits a bottom, stocks have a strong track record of bouncing back in the subsequent months and years. Longer-term investors should keep in mind that a diversified mix of stocks, bonds, alternatives and cash earn their keep in stressful market environments, likely performing better than the S&P 500 Index and other major indices. The bottom line: Balance risk with opportunity, and construct your portfolio within an appropriate time horizon to help achieve your goals.
