If there’s one thing that 2018 has taught us, it’s that volatility is a part of life when it comes to investing.

The last few years of non-existent market jumpiness were really an anomaly. Today, the market’s ups and downs are actually the more typical environment. Stocks don’t always climb up in an absolute straight line.
