Millennials seems the think they know more about investing than they probably do.  A recent survey showed that most millennials will likely either make changes to or sell their portfolio in a falling market. What millennials don't have is experience - baby boomers who lived through the aftermath of the financial crisis, learned the danger of panicking when markets are volatile and would now know to ride out a crisis and not make drastic moves. This shows just how important it is to educate younger generations about investing and how to cope with market shifts.
