The stock market is setting records and approaching 20,000. The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) has registered record of 16 all-time finishes since Donald Trump’s presidential election. Being coined the “Trump Bump” by some investors, Casey St. Henry a financial associate with Thrivent Financial in Sturgeon Bay says a long-term strategy is needed for investors whether they are buying or selling stocks.
St. Henry says although people may naturally want to get into the stock market when it is surging, he recommends that you should meet with a financial professional and have a well-thought plan and strategy and stick with it no matter the swings in the market. The Dow Jones closed up again at 19,911.21 on Tuesday.
