Don't let election drama sway clients' investment decisions Retirement savers should ignore the economic and financial angst that arises as the national elections draw near, according to this article on Kiplinger. The article notes that in the last presidential election, the mainstream media would have you believe the sky was falling: the stock market would drop by much as 30%, and the United States may not be able to pay its bills. Moreover, that "level of drama went on for months." Few mentions were made of a scenario that would pave the way for the positive year the market actually experienced in 2013. Today , the drama started even earlier in the election cycle. The bottom line from the article: Investors should not buy into the hype. Instead, they should create a financial strategy that will enable them to adjust easily to various market trends and conditions. --Kiplinger
