Is Your Financial Advisor Inadvertently Sending You MIXED MESSAGES?

Is your financial advisor inadvertently sending you MIXED MESSAGES?

Most financial professionals are good people who want the best for their clients – because it would be, literally, only a complete jerk who’d do the opposite. If that’s the case, don’t you find it quite odd (as I do) that on the one hand, you have investors who painfully look on helplessly as their lives savings erode – not because they are spending it, but because the stock market tumbles for whatever reason – and on the other hand, you have financial advisors who believe that’s the best approach for those investors when it comes to their nest eggs? 
The vast majority of retirement investors in America seem to be in a constant struggle, so to speak, with their financial advisors – the advisors encouraging them to stay the course without panicking. My question is: Why do we have this constant battle IF everyone knew exactly what they signed up for? Wouldn’t it be an ethical violation if a financial advisor hadn’t clearly explained the upside and the downside possibilities of their client’s choices?
Many in the financial profession, either intentionally or unintentionally, tend to magnify the upside possibility of gains associated with the stock market and, quite frankly, downplay the risk of loss. But does that sort of hope change the reality? It’s true that you can make a lot of money in the stock market, but it’s also true that you can lose a lot of money, including some or all of your seed money.
While I cannot exactly quantify it, the error of failing to put all the pieces on the table when it comes to saving for retirement has ruined (and will probably continue to ruin) more retirement dreams than the stock market itself.
