Trump impeachment trial, coronavirus, earthquakes. Are you stressed yet? Who wants to try and get the snake who started the coronavirus impeached? I bet they’ll find him eventually.
Any given day there’s ample negative headlines to get our hearts fluttering and our emotions in the driver’s seat. In fact, I just did a Google search for “long term stock market chart with negative headlines” as this is one of my favorite graphics and usually works to quell any fears that I’m currently experiencing after losing money (on paper) in my portfolio. I’m not predicting the next direction of the stock market, but accepting that it could go down further. If so, it will not be solely due to the headlines that scare us today, but for a plethora of reasons bigger than us and impossible to fully explain. If the stock market moves sideways for a while before eventually going higher, that’s OK for me as well 😊
I hope you’ll enjoy the graphic and article that I found. It was written by an Australian back in 2018, and coincidentally highlights a few of the same negative events we’re experiencing this year!
