When Market Volatility Meets Your Retirement Portfolio

Christine Benz (christine.benz@morningstar.com)

How much to prepare for the potential for extended market weakness depends largely on life stage. As I noted in this video, people who are many years from retirement can reasonably choose to do nothing during a market swoon, or they may even use it as a buying opportunity. Retirees, on the other hand, tend to experience weak markets differently, and more viscerally, than their still-working counterparts.
