Should you sell?
The answer is probably NO…unless you hit one of these few reasons:
- You no longer believe in Robo’s investing strategy.
- You found a better pick for your funds, maybe you think Tesla is a better bet or VWRA is much more cost-effective.
- You need money urgently (this shouldn’t be the case if you have to keep emergency savings and only invest what you can lose)
Notice that none of the reasons state poor performance or low returns as a selling factor…why?
Because markets are inherently volatile, there are upturns to every downturn. According to a study, the average duration of a bear market is 1.4 years, while an average bull market can last for 9.1 years. Therefore, you shouldn’t be hasty and make a decision on a whim just based on the price alone. As the saying always goes, time in the market over timing the market!
