To My Readers, Year-To-Date, the S&P 500 is down close to 20%. While no one wants poor market

performance, it is important to remember that downturns are a normal part of the market cycle.

What is more important is how you handle this volatility.

Investor affirmation: The short-term volatility of the market doesn’t have an effect on my long-term plans. I am invested based on my plan which accounts for my goals, time- frame, and risk level. I will only make moves if these factors change, not because of the recent swings in markets.

Those with a plan are far less likely to make decisions based on fear and panic. They are more likely to remain positive and stay the course.

For those without a plan, now may be a good time to revisit how and why you are investing. We are always happy to have a conversation to help with your planning. Thank you,  Sid Misra, CFP® Beacon Financial Group

Kim Kardashian recently agreed to pay $1.3 million in civil fines imposed by the SEC. She ran afoul of the SEC’s anti-touting provision which states you cannot communicate about a security without first disclosing if you have been paid for it.

to publish the post

Global Tightening: Many central banks across the world are hiking interest rates at the exact same time…the most to do so simultaneously in history. This is in direct response to a rise in global inflation.

The chart below is from the Council on Foreign Relations and their Global Monetary

Policy Tracker. The purpose of the tracker is as follows:

CFR’s Global Monetary Policy Tracker compiles data from 54 countries around the

world to highlight significant global trends in monetary policy. Who is tightening

policy? Who is loosening policy? And what is the policy stance of the world as a

whole?


 

Is This You?

“We make good money, but we are concerned”


“We are concerned that:

  • We aren’t in a good financial position

  • We aren’t heading in the right direction

  • We don’t know what the right direction is

  • We will never be in a position to stop working

  • We will eventually be a burden to our children”

These concerns won’t go away without addressing them head-on.


You and your family deserve peace of mind when it comes to your finances
