Please click here for the Q4, 2018 Market Summary provided by DFA. Q4 was very bad for U.S. and foreign stock markets, as well as global real estate exposure. Please take a look at page 4 (also pasted below) for a long-term market summary. Here you’ll see all big red down arrows for our 1-Year market performance, but, more importantly, don’t overlook the big green up arrows that represent 5 and 10-Year market performance. When investing in stock markets we know a lot of short time frames, like a month, a quarter, or maybe even a year or two will be down red arrows, but that’s OK because we invest in stocks for long time frames, like 10 years, 20 years or even more. And long time frames will show us plenty of big green arrows pointing up.
