‘Never make important decisions based on emotions’

By RYAN VLASTELICA

MARKETS REPORTER

The recent turbulence in the U.S. stock market no doubt has a lot of investors searching for a strategy to navigate the volatility and protect their capital. The good news: The best tactic most investors can take is easier than they may expect.

In fact, according to one adviser, the important things to keep in mind are so simple they can fit on a single note card. Such a card was recently tweeted by Ritholtz Wealth Management, which credited it to Anthony Isola, a financial adviser at the firm who tweets under the handle @ATeachMoment.

Facts.

4. When it was at $2,000 an ounce!

At $1,350, maybe it's a good idea.

3. I like the part about "turn off tv & don't check account"

Nothing like a major buzzkill when I do check my account....

5. Wow what a chaotic, uncontrolled and devastating economic system.

So, randomly, just as you thought it was safe to play the market again, it will rise and fall for no apparent reason and we think this is a good system? Why isn't it stable? Why the bubbles? Can't we have a less random and less devastating process?

We need to evolve out of capitalism like we did feudalism and slavery.

I know idiots like Trump and Southern Baptists don't believe in evolution, but then they don't believe in science either.
