It sure has been an interesting week in the markets.
The past 6 days have given us more volatility than we have experienced in the past couple years. While it is always unsettling to see declines in the moment it is a natural part of business cycles and greater volatility was anticipated this year.
Here is the link to the full report that was put together by our Portfolio Advisory Group today if you are looking for a more detailed discussion around the context and potential culprits. I am focused on the strong underpinnings highlighted in the report: a strong economy; US corporations are doing well; market valuations have improved.
We are monitoring these movements closely. Please always feel free to reach out to me with any questions.
