GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- What happens to your 401(k) when the market is volatile? For investors, the constant ups and downs can be seen as cause to worry, but experts say this is not the case. Senior retirement adviser for Alerus Rob Woytassek said that investors are affected little day to day and in the long term by market volatility if they are invested within their means. “If you’re investing too aggressively you could see your retirement date pushed back (because of market volatility),” Woytassek said.
GRAND FORKS — North Dakota is nationally known for its oil and gas production, which are both at all-time highs.
