The U.S. Stock Market is Down Big — Here's What Investors Should Do Right Now

As the coronavirus has continued to spread and the number of affected individuals continues to climb, the stock market has begun to feel the pain of uncertainty. The S&P 500 is down over 8% this week alone.

These are legitimate concerns. There are still a lot of unknowns when it comes to safety, health, and how a potential pandemic could impact individuals and companies across the globe.
