Weekly Update, August 6th, 2021

Aug 06, 2021 | Brenda Miller


Good Afternoon,


Another sunny Friday is upon us, and with that, comes an update from the Brenda Miller Wealth Management Team.


Looking at market conditions over the past week, most major markets have been extremely volatile, but ended the week slightly higher than they started. Gains today were due to better than expected jobs reports.


With the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games closing ceremony set to occur on Sunday August 8th, we thought that we would provide you with a quick update on Canada’s progress. This morning, the Canadian women’s soccer team was able to defeat Team Sweden in the gold medal game. Our very own local soccer player, Allysha Chapman, will be bringing home some hardware. Julia Grosso of Canada was able to end the contest in a penalty shootout, making it the first time in history that Canada’s women’s soccer team achieved gold medal status. Also on display this morning was the men’s 4x100m finals. Once again, Andre De Grasse was able to pull off a magnificent comeback in the last 100m of the race, overtaking 2 positions to get Canada another bronze medal. Currently, Canada holds a total of twenty-two medals: six gold medals, six silver medals and ten bronze medals. LET’S GO CANADA!


This week's Current Account discusses the topics of electric homes, Quebec’s childcare funding, and delayed office returns for some major U.S companies.


Taylor’s word of the week this week is verisimilitude, which means the appearance of being true or real.


Please note that we will be upgrading our servers this weekend and we will be unavailable until Monday morning. In addition, Brenda and Taylor will be welcoming family from the West Coast and are spending tomorrow with 31 family members from across the country we have not seen in two years. We are looking forward to non-COVID related activities.


We hope you all get to enjoy your weekend,


Brenda, Taylor, Joel, and Jacob
