Retirement Resources President, Dave Boike Calms The Fears Of Those Who Consider October To Be The Scariest Month Of The Year.

Retirement Resources President and Investment Advisor, Dave Boike, writes about the cyclical financial ups and downs and quells any fears one may have about those scary downturns always happening in the month of October.

Auburn Hills, MI – October 7, 2022 – Dave Boike, President of Retirement Resources and co-author of The Ultimate Success Guide with Brian Tracy published a new blog post on the company website entitled “Not-So-Scary October.” Mr. Boike recognizes the reasons October is associated with being scary, but says it’s not just October when bad things happen in the financial markets.

“October is typically thought of as the scariest month of the year for a few reasons,” writes Boike. He continues, “For starters, we begin to feel the first chill in the air that tell us summer is over and that it’s time to brace ourselves for the winter weather. October is also when Halloween happens. Traditionally that means haunted houses and children as well as the young at heart dressing up as witches and warlocks, ghosts, and goblins, and more.”

According to Boike, “In the financial world, many people begin to tremble in October since it was October 1929 when the biggest stock market crash in history started.” He elaborates, “October 28 and 29th is when it began. Then, there was Black Monday on October 19, 1987. October stimulates recession fears in some people even though we have seen the market recover after every setback.” Boike adds, “ While it took nearly 50 years for the market to recover after the ’29 crash, it didn’t take that long for the market to stabilize and start record-breaking growth after the ’87 crash.”

“The fact is,” says Boike, “that historically there are Bear and Bull Markets. The ups and the downs, they come, and they go. Remember also that there have been other scary months outside of October.” He validates his point, “The Dot COM crash did not happen in October, nor did the real-estate crash of 2008, nor did the recent COVID-19 pandemic that caused the market to falter.”
