Retiring During a Volatile Market: 5 Items to Consider

The past couple of months have been a tumultuous ride for investors. In mid-February, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) reached its peak.  Soon after, the markets were engulfed by extreme volatility, generating record single day losses and ending the long-running bull market in early March; yet, recently, there has been a partial recovery in the markets. While ups and downs in the markets are normal, research has shown that the actual sequence of those market returns (the order in which they are going up or down) within the first five years of starting withdrawals from your retirement assets can have a significant impact on your long-term retirement income.
