How to Keep the 2022 Stock Market From Bankrupting Your Future

What a year it’s been so far for the stock market. Wild swings are keeping investors on edge, and some of the best-performing stocks of last year are down more than 40% so far this year.

How can we keep the highly volatile stock market from driving us insane and bankrupting our future?

Here are 5 ways to manage your wealth in an unstable market.

Buying and holding a diversified set of stocks and bonds is how most working professionals build wealth over time. It might seem boring, but it works.

1. Invest, don’t day trade 

2. Think  long-term

Long-term investors invest in index funds (or high-quality individual stocks) and hold for the long term. Think years.

3. Diversification is key

In order to make money, you need at least one or two of those stocks to go up. Otherwise, you risk losing a great deal of money.

4. Dollar-cost averaging is better than timing the market

This strategy means we’re investing a set amount of money at a consistent interval regardless of the price of the stock.
