When it comes to investing, emotions make poor financial advisors. During market downturns, the optimism investors may have felt when things were looking good can quickly turn to worry—to the point where some of them panic, give in and sell their stock. But that’s how they miss out on market recovery opportunities.


By choosing logic over emotion, you can break free from the current cycle faster and end up in a better financial position. In other words, staying calm and positive is a wise investment strategy—that is why it’s important to never lose sight of your most valuable asset: your long-term vision.
