Workers at Baird Financial Advisors in Green Bay say for the Dow Jones to drop is completely normal.

They believe numbers will eventually get back up.

Baird Financial says this is wake up call for people to invest wisely and know how much they have in stocks and bonds.

They should also know what the appropriate mix of stocks and bonds is for them.

Worker say someone close to retirement should have less in stocks and someone who is just starting out could have all in stocks.

Financial experts say there’s no need to hit the panic button.

"The thing is, when something like this happens, is not to make a rash decision and decide you're never going to be in stocks again,” said Ken Petter, Branch Manager, Baird Financial Services.

Petter also says a bad day or two isn't a reason to get discouraged from investing and it's always good to keep your eyes on the long term.
