Doing battle with COVID-19 – what to do while the crisis rages?

2020 started well, until the reality of COVID-19, combined with the Moody’s downgrade, wreaked havoc on markets, our communities and the economy.

We have had to deal with unprecedented levels of volatility, including the fastest ever 30% decline in the S&P 500 and the worst ever month for our local bond market.

The recovery has been almost as swift, with the strongest 50-day move for the S&P 500 since 1952. In the face of so much uncertainty it is important to avoid knee-jerk reactions to sharp market moves and stick to your long-term investment goals.
