As I write this after the market close on March 9th, 2020, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is down 1,800 points on the day, for a loss of 7.8%. The S&P 500 is down by 7.6% – the worst single day on for U.S. equities since the 2008 crisis.
This Monday loss follows some significant volatility late last week that already had a lot of investors on edge.
No doubt, most of you advisors out there are receiving some nervous calls and emails from your clients, wondering what’s going on.
This is where great advisors can earn their money. As a matter of fact, you as financial advisors may well not have as great an opportunity to add value for your clients for a very long time as you do today.
