Bear markets are inevitable but too often we are our own worst enemy when we must navigate one. In a upward trending bull market that is often a wise choice but when we are faced with corrective action like we have experienced for that last 2 ½ months it is recipe for pain.

The Singapore-based strategist at Societe Generale, one of the few to anticipate the slump in emerging markets beginning in January, sees no imminent turnaround for the asset class.

Baby boomers should be aware of how a rising rate environment may affect their retirement income strategies. "Although rates have been rising this year, we don't expect a significant move higher from this point, especially if market volatility continues and investors reallocate from risky stocks to safer bond investments," says David Spika, president at GuideStone Capital Management in Dallas.
