In this week’s Matt’s Minutes, we discuss a common pattern that has emerged over the years regarding the bottom of the market. Matt talks about the “unscientific science” behind client calls and market timing that may surprise most. Essentially in our experience, the most concerned calls and emails from clients have historically peaked at a time when the market is bottoming out. This isn’t a prediction of what we think is about to happen but calls and emails recently have hit an all-time high and it will be interesting to see where the market goes from here.
