Despite a slight drop in the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) on Wednesday, the stock market continues to soar in 2017. The Dow Jones closed at 23,320.70 yesterday after eclipsing the landmark 20,000 back in late January. Casey St. Henry, a financial associate with Thrivent Financial in Sturgeon Bay, says a long-term strategy is needed no matter how the stock market is fairing.
St. Henry says although people may naturally want to get into the stock market when it is surging, he recommends that you meet with a financial professional for a well-thought plan and strategy. The Dow Jones has experienced 18 percent growth since the first of the year.
