Don Bertrand, vice president of WealthTrust-Arizona, and Kelly Campbell, founder and principal of Campbell Wealth Management, offered their takes on the shifting market environment.

"There's a lot of shock factor going on right now," Campbell said. "I would recommend investors wait until Monday, wait until next week. It's too early to make any decision on this right now."

Bertrand agreed: "I'd wait until early next week, give it a couple more days to see what impact this [Dubai news] is going to have on the market. I wouldn't make any rash moves right now."
