May 2018 PCM Report

While much is continually made of the "New Normal" in the financial markets, volatility since the beginning of 2018 looks more like a return to the "Old Normal".

This month we attempt to identify whether the spike in market volatility suggests the onset of a bear market or a need for increased patience by investors. We show how a strategy to manage volatility, similar to Dynamic Risk Hedging, can be attractive from a risk/return trade-off.

Best advice: keep your belt buckled low and tight around your waist.
