A Deep Analytic Perspective of the 2022 Market Correction

Advisor Perspectives welcomes guest contributions. The views presented here do not necessarily represent those of Advisor Perspectives.

The U.S. stock market corrected during the first half of 2022, especially during the second quarter, causing widespread panic. While nobody can reliably predict the future, we can gain a historical perspective using deep analytics, a patented technology developed by my firm, Andes Wealth Technologies.

I will demonstrate how financial advisors can combine behavioral finance and deep analytics to have a robust conversation with clients during financial turmoil, showing compassion and understanding on the one hand, while telling a compelling long-term story on the other hand.

How bad has it been?

When a client calls in a panic, first show that you understand, starting with the obvious, which is the daily price chart.
