The Stock Market will go up and down. Most people who invest in the market are planning on using that money to help fund their retirements. Don’t let the down days affect you if you are truly invested for the long haul. Companies will continue to innovate and that innovation will allow for profits which should lead to higher stock prices. If that does not convince you, when I was born in 1971, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was at 874. As I write today, it is above 13,000. Think about it.
