There’s no doubt that volatility has once again come back to roost. As stocks have continued their climb, investors are no longer able to ignore geopolitical problems, poor guidance or data. And with that, we’ve experienced some pretty big price swings over the last few weeks. For younger investors, the volatility may not seem such a problem as their long timelines tend to smooth out short-term jumpiness.
