All investing involves some degree of risk, whether it is associated with market volatility, purchasing power or a specific security. Stocks are subject to market risk which means their value may fluctuate in response to general economic and market conditions, the prospects of individual companies, and industry sectors. Bonds are subject to interest rate, price and credit risks. Prices tend to be inversely affected by changes in interest rates. Foreign investing presents certain risks not associated with domestic investments, such as currency fluctuation, political and economic instability, and different accounting standards. This may result in greater share price volatility.
