Stock investors now have that uncomfortable feeling when the law of gravity comes into play and share prices slide.

The best way to navigate this choppy market is to understand sentiment shifts and be flexible in your assumptions and tactics. Gather information and make decisions from knowledge and strength. Just don’t panic. If you could stay in stocks as the market climbed a wall of worry, you can take stock as that wall shows some cracks.
