maxresdefaultDon’t make the mistake of reacting to each news story as it hits the wires. Markets always anticipate what will happen in the near future and move before the event. That’s why it pays for investors to read the market’s mood and ignore their Twitter feeds.

The news changes all the time—but the market’s own signals are much better at forecasting stock market movements. Investors should keep with their individual asset allocation strategies based on their life situations  and not let the news of the day be the reason you make investment decisions.
