At times, stock market volatility can wreak havoc on investors. According to Deutsche Asset Management, from 1973 through 2016, leaving in currency exposure to an MSCI EAFE investment resulted in volatility on average 2.7 percentage points higher 91% of the time. If the research is well done and the plan is in place, sticking to the plan might be the call. Being able to see the overall picture when the markets become turbulent may allow the investor to move forward with confidence.
