To know where the markets are going, we must know where the markets have been.

The assumption that what we have just observed recently will continue in the future is called ‘recency bias’. Unfortunately most clients suffer from this type of thinking.

It’s important that clients learn not to rely on ‘recency bias’ when thinking about the stock market. This type of thinking may be accurate in the short-term but it is rarely accurate when predicting long-term results.

This is the perfect webinar for educating clients about long-term investing and dispelling fear among those who feel the pressure to run to the sidelines under emotional duress.

During this presentation Don Connelly will give you the ultimate proof that investing money in the stock market and staying the course through turbulent times is the right thing to do.

During this presentation Don will illustrate, with extraordinary photos and vivid charts, the upward trend of the Dow Jones Industrial Average over the last seven decades, from less than 200 in 1950 to more than 36,000 in 2022; from the Korean War to the Covid19 pandemic. Each photograph shows an event that so impacted the American psyche that the mainstream media announced in bold type that “This time it’s different.” – even though it really wasn’t.

Don will also carefully explain that volatility must be distinguished from risk. Risk is the possibility of loss. Volatility is simply unpredictable and sudden change. Risk deserves our attention. Volatility is just short-term noise.

Financial Advisors and clients who attend this presentation will have a better understanding of risk tolerance, risk perception and recency bias – topics all important to understand when developing sound, long-term investing strategy that clients can stick with even in challenging times.

Here’s the message you’ll take away from this presentation.

Anyone who listens to this presentation will understand that the market always bounces back, despite the adversity. America is a resilient nation built on adversity. America was built on risk and America thrives on risk. Since the founding of the New York Stock Exchange in 1792, American markets have been going down, coming back and setting new highs. Faith in corporate America has always been rewarded. Clients need to know this.
