Many investors are understandably nervous when it comes to what the markets will do in any given week. Some are downright agitated - especially when volatility reigns. My take? Keep calm. The markets are doing what they need to be doing right now. The big swings we've experienced are not a sign that the markets are broken. Far from it... I'm actually glad to see volatility because it means the markets are working normally. A little give and take is absolutely essential when it comes to bigger gains and better returns. Hard to stomach with everything that's going on? Yup... which is why It's worth noting that the markets have posted positive second half gains 26 of 26 times since WWII when the S&P 500 has turned in positive January and February returns. Those aren't bad odds. So now on with the show... Just who is your money's worst enemy?
