Better to stick to a well-devised investment plan than try to guess when investors' lucky streak is set to end.

It seems as though the Brexit never even happened; however, it was as recent as June 2016 that it cost the market a 5% one-day loss. Many would say that the market is over inflated, Wall Street has been on a vacation and a turbulent election will influence a correction in the market.
