As we look back on 2018, we'd like to thank you for the trust you've placed in us to manage your Fidelity Go® account. We know you've worked hard to save this money, and we look forward to continuing to help you reach your goals.
Over the past year we've seen global growth remain positive. However, growing uncertainty regarding the future pace of global growth and level of future corporate earnings weighed on stocks globally, and drove volatility higher in the final months of 2018. We understand that watching the markets decline can feel stressful, but market volatility is normal, even in healthy environments for stocks and bonds. Our view is that the global economy is still relatively healthy and corporate earnings are likely to continue to grow. It may be tempting to make decisions based on daily events. As long as the investment strategy you chose still matches your situation and your feelings about risk, we believe it's better to stay the course and not change your investment positioning at this time.
If you haven't already done so, now may be a good time to set up your target goals on the Fidelity Go dashboard, where you can track your progress throughout the year. You can also set up monthly deposits to keep more of your money working for you.
Again, thank you for your continued business and your trust in the Fidelity Go team. If anything should change with your situation, please be sure to let us know. As always, you can check on your money and your strategy by logging into your account.
