Market Volatility Resources
During periods of uncertainty in the markets, it can be challenging to determine what, if any, action to take. Your Ameriprise financial advisor is committed to helping you navigate market volatility with personalized advice for your long-term, diversified investment strategy.
As this chart of the S&P 500® Index illustrates, after the selling pressure of a bear market finally hits a bottom, stocks have a strong historical record of bouncing back in the subsequent months and years.
Longer-term investors should keep in mind that a diversified mix of stocks, bonds, alternatives and cash can earn their keep in stressful market environments, potentially performing better than the S&P 500 Index and other major indices.

Bear markets defined by a drop of 20% or more from market peak to market trough based on S&P 500 Total Return Index.
Index must have recovered completely (closed above previous peak) before a new bear market can begin.
Past performance is not a guarantee of future results.
