5. By getting out then you missed

a significant rise in stocks. Even with this recent drop, the Dow is still about 7,000 points above what it was when Trump was inaugurated. Shifting to different kinds of investments, such as dividend paying ones, would be a better strategy.

As someone else has posted, the Dow will post new highs, but it never posts new lows. Yeah, it goes up, it goes down and in the long run it goes up, averaging out at 10% per year.
