Let’s not kid ourselves.

When the market is volatile, we investors sit on the edge of our seats waiting for the next piece of bad news.

Our fingers stand ready to pull the trigger to empty our entire portfolio, because the thought of more losses is sickening.

It’s a natural reaction. We’ve all been there.

But emotional investing isn’t the answer.

In this episode of The Bull & The Bear, Money & Markets contributor Charles Sizemore and I discuss emotional investing and what it means for investors.

We’ll guide you through what to do when your stomach starts to rumble as you refresh your portfolio tracker every five minutes.

Remember, knowing the data and the details around a particular stock, sector or trend can help you determine your next move. It helps keep emotional investing in check.

That’s why we do the work for you by spotting these trends and looking at specific stocks. We give you our proven analysis of those trends and stocks to help you make the most informed decision concerning your investments.
