A Message Regarding Recent Market Declines


Economy and Market Here at Hills

Recent market declines have reminded investors that stocks come with risk. After an unusual period of calm, the stock market experienced a decline of 8% over the last several trading days. The sell-off was triggered by concerns about rising interest rates and what that meant for stock valuations and inflation expectations. A recent report on improving wage growth exacerbated the concern and investor sentiment briefly experienced panic on Monday as the markets declined more than 4%. While this decline is noteworthy and certainly tests an investor’s fortitude, it is not unprecedented. Corrections, or market declines of 10% and 5%, have historically occurred one and three times per year on average respectively. It had been 80 weeks since the last 5% correction, so we were certainly overdue. Because it has been so long though, this recent decline has garnered much media attention, which only amplifies concerns.
