PHOENIX - July 25, 2023 - PRLog -- In the newest blog post from Trajan Wealth, Matt Coffina, CFA takes a look at the current financial market and how it informs the stock market and how we should respond with our investments.

Looking at the beginning of this year, we have seen a strong first half to the year.  In the second quarter, the S&P 500 delivered an 8.7% total return, leaving the benchmark up 19.4% over the last year. This could be a very surprising thing considering the investor fears including inflation, interest rate hikes, a banking crisis, debt ceiling worry, and a weakening economy.

These factors all serve as a potent reminder that trying to time the market might not be a great idea. There are so many factors at play at any given time, the market is mostly unpredictable in the short term. On a longer timeline, however, we have seen strong growth in stocks, and that is a very powerful thing to remember when planning your investment strategy.

There are several reasons to maintain a long-distance view of your goals when making investment decisions, as well as several traps one could fall into when looking at your portfolio for short-term results. One piece of advice for avoiding these traps is to avoid looking at your account balance too often. When the market is up, it could lead to you feeling overconfident and overspending, and when the market is down, it could cause anxiety and cause you to make rash decisions.
