Stock Market’s Fall Has Wiped Out $3 trillion Savings This Year

The selloff has erased nearly $3 trillion from U.S. retirement accounts. 401(k) plan participants have lost about $1.4 trillion the last 5 months! IRAs – most of which are 401(k) rollovers – have lost $2 trillion this year.

Historically, 401(k) investments take about two years after a market decline of this size to regain their previous value. Imagine losing TWO YEARS!

Anybody who must retire when the market is down is in a bad position People who use their retirement money to support themselves really suffer in this kind of event.

Nearly three-quarters of all 401(k) money is held in stocks, according to a Vanguard report from 2021. This year it’s been mostly down:

  • The S&P 500 has sunk 22%
  • The Dow Jones Industrial Average has lost nearly 13%
  • The Nasdaq Composite has fallen more than 30%.

What do they have in common? – Average Saver has NO control!!
