On Black Friday and Cyber Monday shoppers, myself included will look for discounts and additional value on the products that they buy.

Now it’s always worth doing your homework to make sure that you’re getting the value that you think you’re getting but it occurred to me that maybe we’re at a point of adding value or discount in the stock markets at the moment and that’s very much from a long term point of view.

The S&P 500 which is one of the main US markets has dropped as much as 24% this year and has recovered to about -16%.

Now over the next couple of years could things get worse?

We have a lot to be dealing with in terms of inflation, recessions, and geopolitical conflicts and the answer to that is, yes.

But I think again the emphasis is on the long term if you look into the long term, 5 or 10 years time, will this have been a time that there was a discount or value to be had in the market?

We don’t know what’s going to happen and when in terms of the stock market movements.

All we know is that the long-term trend is upwards.

In the below graph of the S&P 500 over 100 years, you can see that the over-all trend is upwards.

Now, you do get periods such as now or by there’s been a drop and the emphasis on the long term is for 2 reasons, and that’s to be able to get through those drops and also that’s where the value tends to be had over the long term and availing of compound interest.
