The markets have been extremely volatile as of late.

Carol Schleif, deputy chief investing officer at Abbot Downing, weighed in on the markets as we head into 2019. 

She took a look at the jobs report, which fell short of expectations when it was released before the market opened on Friday, Dec. 7. 

"The reaction that investors should have," when it comes to something like the missed jobs report, "is to have a solid grip on what their long-term investment objectives are," Schleif told TheStreet.

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."
