IBJ Podcast: Columnist Mickey Kim on surviving a volatile stock market

Keywords Finance / Investing / Podcast

Following an unexpectedly strong year for the stock market, 2022 is starting with far more volatility, as concern about interest rate hikes and lingering supply chain issues have kept investors jumping.

So what do you do as you watch the balance in your 401(k) fund rise and fall (and so far this year, mostly fall)? IBJ investing columnist Mickey Kim says to stick with your plan—which probably means doing nothing, although that can be tough.

“When things get rocky, we want to protect ourselves,” he tells host Mason King. “We are thinking: Don’t just sit there, do something. And I will tell you: Doing something is the wrong thing to do.”

Kim explains why and offers some thoughts on why the market is so jittery.
