The market had a rough week and the financial media was handed a plethora of scary statistics on a silver platter. When markets evoke emotions, its really important to stay away from reading or watching things that can cause you to make bad decisions. I took the liberty of collecting some articles and to my pleasant surprise, I had a tough time finding the crazy stuff. Should next week look like this week, I’m sure that won’t be a problem at all.
