Why today's stock volatility shouldn't scare retirees Market volatility should not be a concern for retirees, according to a new study. While stock prices seem more volatile, the study by Kenneth Washer and Randy Jorgensen of Creighton University, and Robert Johnson, president and CEO of the American College of Financial Services, measured price changes in the short-term and long-term and found that volatility has increased only on a daily basis. When measured in monthly increments, there "has been no discernible change in return volatility," as the article quotes one of the researchers. "Long-term investors can take comfort that many of the large daily price declines are at least partially offset by similar price increases and that when measured over longer periods, volatility has not increased," the researchers said. – USA Today
