The U.S. Stock Market Rollercoaster Ride

The past couple weeks have been a roller-coaster ride for the stock market. If you have been tracking the stock market and trying to learn more about investing and Wall Street this fortnight has been a crash course for you. Be aware that the stock market’s performance is not always this hectic, but you need to be prepared for when it is. If you have learned anything from this personal finance blog I hope you have learned that when investing you must diversify to survive wild stock market swings. In my personal retirement investment account I have seen my investments lose half their all-time gains in one short period to almost back where it was when the stock market’s dysfunction began a couple weeks ago. The next 2 weeks will probably be decisive on which general direction the overall stock market will follow.
