Even with lots of market volatility this week, Brad McMillan explains that we shouldn’t worry about a recession for at least a few more years, according to Business Insider.

Brad McMillan is chief investment officer for Commonwealth Financial Network, which oversees $160 billion. McMillan explains that the choppiness of the markets is nothing to worry about and recession indicators show that a recession is still two years out.

McMillan said, “As long as the headlines keep justifying it, we're going to see the market react and that's actually a healthy thing because that's what the market should be doing.”
