Why Does This Market Decline Feels So Much Worse?
Play • 16 min

In today's episode Nicholas Olesen, CFP®, CPWA® shares why this 10% pullback in the stock market feels so much worse and that data that validates those feelings.

"How is the market only down 10%?" is a common question in recent conversations with investors and we believe it's a very fair feeling. Rather than just respond with, that's a normal pullback or it'll come back, we thought it would be more helpful to dive into the underlying reasons this feeling makes sense.

Here's the three main reasons we expand on:

  • Stocks and bonds are both down more than 10% so far this year, the largest joint drawdown since the late 1970's.
  • The drawdown has been much, much worse for many stocks
  • The largest and most commonly owned companies have also pulled back more
