The Markets/Fed/Economic Recovery

There’s enough going on to make your head spin!  The passing of Supreme Court Justice Ginsberg, TikTok, continuing Covid-19 issues, the economic recovery, stimulus battle, Federal Reserve alteration, the election, and of course politics!!!!  Certainly, enough to increase market volatility!

Markets Get More Juice!!

Over the weekend, the markets received another chunk of dough in the form of extended unemployment benefits, a payroll tax holiday, an eviction moratorium extension, and additional student loan payment deferment.

STIMULUS/JOBS/MARKETS

No deal yet? Should the dollar figure be $600, $200 or perhaps meet in the middle @ $400!

How to Allocate Assets Within Your Portfolio When You Retire

If you’re nearing retirement, you may need to consider asset allocation in a different way. Be aware that asset allocation cannot eliminate the risk of fluctuating prices and uncertain returns.

Market Optimism is SKY HIGH!

An amazing 2.5 Million Jobs were added back in May, according to last Friday’s ADP employment report.  The crazy part is: economists estimated we’d have a LOSS of over 8 Million Jobs.  Certainly, shows that no one can accurately predict the data, except those that guess correctly. A combination of Federal Reserve Monetary Support, Government […]
