September and October were torrid months for global markets. From a high on 28 August, the MSCI AC World in GBP was down by over 9% by 24 October. The FTSE 100, which had been falling for longer, was down over 10% in October from highs reached in May, even with dividends included. What’s worse, this was the second selloff this year.
Both indices had fallen by a similar magnitude over the first quarter of 2018.
Market falls are unsettling for investors, leading to questions like, “what if this time is different, what if markets never recover? Should I be doing something different?”
