Weekend Investment Reading – Ignoring the Volatility

by Investing School on December 12, 2008

The volatility seems to be continuing but as long term investors, we probably don’t have much to worry about. While the daily swings seem to be pretty wild, look at the week ending price of the Dow for the past month.

  • Dec 11 – 8,565.09
  • Dec 5 – 8,635.42
  • Nov 28 – 8,829.04
  • Nov 21 – 8,046.42
  • Nov 14 – 8,497.31

Pretty much the same huh? We are grinding through the bottom which is a good sign! Hang in there and check out some of the articles I found interesting the past week!

  • I suggested everyone to make an investment plan when I wrote Seeing the Big Picture in Creating Wealth over at MoneyNing.
  • The oblivious investor tells us that buying high cost mutual funds is like betting against the house in gambling! Not a wise move!
  • ABCs of Investing tells us two possible ways to receive dividends – cash or reinvested. Personally, I vote for having it reinvested but what about you?
  • Moolanomy has an article up explaining when we should buy bonds. Remember to also check out my intro to bond funds!
