Retirement: Market Uncertainty

Your Retirement Savings in a Down Market

If you’re like most investors, your retirement savings are probably in a mix of investments. When it’s time to use your retirement savings to generate income, a bear market can wreak havoc on your retirement portfolio. If you’re making regular withdrawals from your brokerage account for income, you may have to sell investments at a loss during a down market and miss out on potential future gains. Withdrawals during down markets can reduce your principal and deplete your assets.
