LPL Research: Outlook 2016

Posted On: Jan 01, 2016

When you think of a routine, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Some may think, it’s the mundane, the small steps and processes you follow to accomplish all your tasks for the day. But routine is more than that. It’s about forming good habits, feeling prepared. And perhaps the best part of a routine is the comfort that comes from knowing what to expect. For investors, the definition of a good routine would be knowing what to expect from the markets. Is there such thing as a routine year for markets?

Over the last 50 years, the S&P 500 Index grew at an average of about 10% a year, but its return was between 0% and 20% in any single year less than half the time. We haven’t witnessed a price return of 6 –11%, a range that might be considered typical for markets, since 1992, over 20 years. And even when there was a year in the routine 10 –20% range, there were other things going on in the markets that made the year feel anything but routine. Yields may have been extraordinarily low, or extraordinarily high. Commodities were booming, or collapsing. There really is no such thing as a routine year for markets. However, your financial advisor and LPL Research’s Outlook 2016 can help you prepare for what we may see in the year ahead.
