So, since the 14th, S-Fund is down around ~2.7%. Yet, this model is still saying Stay Calm and there is good reason to be in stocks?

What is telling it to be in stocks when the last 2 weeks have been down?

Just wondering. Thank you for the education!

You are reading it wrong. See the label on the right that says "Stay Calm Index Below 5.00 Bearish"?
The Stay Calm Index has been under 5 since Feb 8.

"Stay Calm" in this case means stay out of stocks, and don't get antsy or impatient to jump back in. There continues to be good reasons to NOT be in stocks.

Thanks for the question. I go by the principle, if one person is confused about something, and ask a question, then there are probably several hundred also confused. But not brave enough to ask.

Bertrand Russell's quote. I made a joke?
