A bear market occurs when the stock market declines at least 20 percent over a prolonged period of time.
People who just invested in the market may not be prepared for it.
The Institute of Certified Financial Planners has some reccommendations.
First, DON'T PANIC.
It's inevitable a bear market will arrive.
Usually it happens every four years.
HAVE REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS.
Last year was an unusually good one for the market.
On average, it has returned 10- and- a- half- percent since 1926, but with some pretty wild swings in between.
DIVERSIFY.
Spread out your investment funds among stocks, bonds, and short- term cash reserves.
KNOW YOURSELF.
If the thought of losing money makes you cringe, don't put everything in the market.
LOOK LONG TERM.
That reduces the pressure to sell since you don't need the money right away.
