The markets are poised to cap off a rocky week on Wall Street with, yes, more volatility.
So, should you turn everything in your 401(k) retirement plan into cash?
Financial advisors have one message for you: Don't panic.
That holds true even as the Dow Jones Industrial Average has had three-digit swings throughout the week. The stock market index plummeted more than 500 points at one point on Friday.
Meanwhile, the S&P 500 index dropped as much as 2.2 percent and flirted with correction territory.
Despite the scary headlines, these are signs of a healthy market, said certified financial planner Scott Hanson, founder and senior partner at Hanson McClain Advisors.
"The market has to go through this sort of thing," Hanson said. "The longer we go without volatility, the more nervous I become. I almost welcome a bit of this shaking out."
