Good Things Can Happen in Bad Markets with Don Calcagni
Senior Vice President
We’re now in the 10th year of a bull market, and it’s been one marked by historically low volatility. Sure, we’ve had a few corrections since 2008, including a 10% pullback off the highs early this year. And though investors have been conditioned over the past decade to think corrections are rare, the fact is that bear markets, not mere corrections, take place on average about every six years.
Moreover, those bear markets have an average decline of some 33%, and an average duration of 18 months. So, what the good part?
In this episode of the Science of Economic Freedom, “Good Things Can Happen in Bad Markets,” I speak with Don Calcagni, Chief Investment Officer of Mercer Advisors. In this show, Don helps us understand how corrections and bear markets work, and how investors should react during down market cycles. Plus, Don outlines the seven outcomes of a down market cycle that are actually positive for long-term investors.
Topics discussed in this episode include:
