Domestic equity markets experienced their worst first half of a year since 1970 when the markets closed on June 30, 20221. The S&P 500, as an example, was down 21 percent the first half of this year. Additionally, the bond market has experienced volatility largely due to rising interest rates.
Many investors understand that market volatility is expected when investing for the long-term but that does not make losses any less painful.
Is there a silver lining to this year’s market losses?
