Volatile Markets-Keep your eyes on the long term

One of the best ways to deal with volatility is to ignore day-to-day movements in the market and focus on the long term.

If you aren’t planning to access your pension or ISA in the near future, these short term fluctuations shouldn’t be critical.

Over longer periods, stock markets generally rise smoothing out the peaks and troughs along the way.  The longer you keep your money invested, the more chance there is that you’ll benefit from this overall rise.
