Auto-Invest and the market: Why it’s your best friend
Will the market go up and down? YES. For example, the markets have recently reacted to the spread of Covid-19. And often with noise comes volatility, or turbulence.
Long-term investors (that’s you) shouldn’t be concerned with timing the market. No one can predict exactly what the market will do tomorrow or next week.
Consider market fluctuations as opportunities to continue adding to your portfolio at lower prices. If the market keeps dropping, keep adding those little amounts. If the market goes up, keep adding those little amounts. As a reminder, investing involves risk. Please take your financial situation into consideration when making investment decisions.
You’re one step closer to becoming an investor.

Never mind the market, hold steady
Look back at the last few decades. There were gains and declines through the dotcom bust, 9/11, the Great Recession, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and three separate presidential administrations. But staying the course has proved to be the way to go.
Imagine if you’d bought small amounts of these investments all through these ups and downs. You could have harnessed the gains from when the market was up, and bought more when the market was down As a reminder past performance is not a guarantee of future results.
