I tuned out the noise. Still lost 2%. Please advise.

Tuning out the noise isn’t bad advice, but it isn’t very helpful either. 2019 is a cacophony of noise from the time we wake up at 4 A.M. until the time we’re back in bed and scrolling through Twitter one last time.
On days like today, what I find helpful is to ask myself a few questions:
- Why am I investing? What is this all for?
That’s it. This is all that’s important. Focus on what matters and deal with the noise. Tuning it out is a useless endeavor.
