FINANCIAL TIP OF THE DAY

(HOWARD FINANCIAL GROUP) The Howard Financial Group gives a retirement tip of the day to give viewers a piece of mind. Assume there is a 30% correction in the stock market, if you lose 30% in your portfolio it would take a 43% gain to get back to 0. The stock market is at an all-time high meaning it is more volatile than ever with more influences now than in history.
