Carol Schleif, deputy chief investment officer at Abbot Downing, discussed the market volatility.
She said that a lot of issues have been around for a long time--such as the Federal Reserve's hikes, jobs reports, or trade.
Schleif also weighed in on the markets as we head into 2019.
Schleif said that the market has baked in a rate hike from the Federal Reserve in December.
"There's this missed perception that volatility means risk," she said. But "in many cases, it couldn't be farther from the truth."
