Where do we go from here?
When markets fall, the next peak usually isn’t far away
Bear markets can be brutal… But bull markets have a history of charging back.
"The TSX grew 96.71% since the COVID bottom in 2020 to the most recent peak on 3/29/2022. The index then fell 17.02% to the recent bottom on 7/14/2022. The drop has not reached the 20% threshold for a bear market based on the chart's methodology. Therefore, we cannot conclude that the most recent bull market has ended and that we are in a bear market right now for the TSX."
If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance the markets have had a setback. That comes with the territory. But history has shown that falling markets don’t last nearly as long as rising markets – and the valleys typically aren’t nearly as big as the peaks.
Down markets tend to be relatively shallow and short-lived
Don’t let down markets make you lose sight of your long-term goals.
Missing the best days of a rising market can drastically reduce your long-term returns.
A diverse portfolio can protect you from downturns and give you access to markets and investments that are on the rise.
