Commentary: Equities are in one of the worst bear markets I’ve ever lived through. It looks like we’re headed for a serious worldwide recession. Several indicators of investor fear are at peaks never seen before. It could be that all but the worst of outcomes is already discounted in the current prices of stocks.

Many investors have found themselves well-served over long time horizons by investing regularly in a diversified portfolio of stocks or low cost, broadly diversified indexed stock funds.
