Absolutely it is, if one is inclined to act on what they see/hear. I don't, but I do enjoy watching the gyrations.Afty wrote: ↑Mon Mar 02, 2020 12:53 pm Sometimes I think that keeping up with financial news and reading forums like this is a negative. My wife is totally unaware that anything has happened with the market. She's therefore unintentionally staying the course. This has happened before where she totally forgot about a retirement account and we discovered it years later. It had been invested in a target retirement fund (the plan default) and had done great!
As I've noted elsewhere, if this volatility bothers someone they should ignore the noise and just check their PF value 2, 3, or 4 times per year.
