Should You Stick With the Equity Market amid This Volatility?

The US economy was heading toward deflation before the presidential election, which hampered the stock markets as well. Before the election, the US stock market—as represented by the S&P 500 Index—gained as much as 2% in 2016. As of August 30, the S&P 500 has gained 36.1% since the election. Not only did US stock markets enjoy gains, but markets worldwide also saw solid performance.
