For nine years we have enjoyed a steady, if not rampant, Bull market.
The disaster of 2008 seems long gone...and it is.
For almost six years now, it has been a story of almost unquenched, steady growth in financial assets and benign volatility.
Many investors have been lulled into an almost catatonic state of assuming consistent and steady gains, month after month.
Indeed, with equity markets constantly setting new highs with little or no drawdowns it is understandable why. But, as we all know, there is no such thing and markets will always be at the vagaries of buyers and sellers. The real world has returned...investment is simply not that easy!
