Only 18% of Americans plan to increase their stock market investments this year, according to a survey.

Sharing is Caring!

The stock market’s roller-coaster ride isn’t inspiring confidence in investors. Still, a small portion do plan to take advantage of recent price dips.

About 18% of Americans are willing to put more money into stock market investments this year, including retirement accounts, according to a recent survey from Bankrate. The online survey polled more than 1,500 investors April 19-22.

“When markets pull back, it does represent a good buying opportunity, particularly for the automatic savings that happen through a 401(k),” said Greg McBride, chief financial analyst at Bankrate. “A volatile year like this could in the long-run prove to be an attractive buying opportunity and you’ll be glad you invested more.”
