The coronavirus crisis has left millions unemployed, thousands sick and most people in some financial strain. The last thing many of us want to do right now is look at our investments.

And in May, Federal Reserve chair Jerome Powell warned of a “prolonged recession,” leaving many wondering if the worst is yet to come. If you didn’t look at your portfolio, you’d be doing yourself a favor.
