AN IN­VESTOR’S MOST IM­POR­TANT CHART

Finweek English Edition - - FEEDBACK -

This is an an­nual chart of the Top40, writes JustOneLap founder and Fin­week con­trib­u­tor Si­mon Brown. Each data point is a sin­gle year. We see no daily noise or panic as we’ve wit­nessed over the past week. We see just a sim­ple truth, mar­kets go higher.

This chart con­firms ev­ery­thing about long-term in­vest­ing: it works. Buy the mar­ket and ig­nore the short-term noise.

When mar­kets next go crazy, and they will, re­mem­ber this.
