Markets have good weeks and bad weeks. That's why smart investors bet on the long term.

This chrome extension was inspired by a Wealthsimple tweet on Feb 2, 2018. This tweet showed that the 1 week, 1 year, 5 year and 10 year returns on the S&P 500. The market was down 3.7% on the week and headlines across the TV and every newspaper talked of "panic" and "meltdown."
But the tweet reminded me that the market's performance week over week is really irrelevant for the vast majority of us. We aren't day traders or speculators. We're simply investing our money - for retirement. That's likely 20 to 40 years out for us.
Smart investors don't panic. They keep calm and Invest on.
This simple chrome extension is a constant reminder that the best approach is to invest on autopilot and bet on the longterm. It shows the real-time 1 week, 1 year, 5 year and 10 year returns of the S&P 500 Index (aka, ^GSPC).
