Beating Back Fear For Income Investors – Seeking Alpha

Beating Back Fear For Income Investors – Seeking Alpha: Whenever there is market volatility — especially downward volatility — certain kinds of articles spring up on Seeking Alpha and other sites like crabgrass in the summer. You know the kinds I mean. They have titles like “Buy And Hold Fails Again,” or “What To Do About The Coming Crash,” or “Market Downturn Is Inevitable; Time To Go To Cash?”

The common theme is fear. Fear of losing money as prices slide downward for who knows how long. Fear of giving up in just a few weeks or days the gains that it took several years to achieve. Fear of falling behind a benchmark and never catching up. Fear of underperforming your neighbor.
