Market Volatility

Making sense of sharemarkets, your super and investments.

What goes down, should go up

The good news is that although the market falls in 08/09 were severe, as professional investors we know that markets and economies all move in growth cycles – from boom periods, to events like the global financial crisis. Think about previous recessions and market downturns – 1987, 1990, 1994 and 2002. Each of these periods has been followed by a long period of sustained growth. Of course, the past performance of sharemarkets isn't an accurate way of predicting what will happen in the future, but based on history, we can be reasonably certain that markets will again recover in time.

It is important to note that last year’s best performing asset class can easily become next year’s worst, or vice versa. Please see here the Perils of Market Timing which highlights the best performing assets over a 10 year period and how different asset classes have performed over a range of events.
