Hi Abe.

My plan personally is to simply keep doing what I’ve been doing in my retirement accounts. Buying up as many ETF’s as I can. If. Bond yields continue to rise I might start allocating a bit more money into bond ETF’s.

However I just turned 30 so I have a very long term outlook on my retirement accounts.

Anyone who is approaching retirement might be well served to sit down with their investment advisor and review their strategy (which is very different than making a reflex/panic decision based off headlines/current volatility).

Also that’s in my retirement accounts, which is money I don’t plan on touching for several decades. I’m much more conservative with my short-mid term money (money I might need to access within the next 2–5 years).

Working on an idea for a future article now about the pros and cons of following stock market headlines. It’s good to stay informed but many of the headlines these days can freak people out and give them anxiety.
