Market Frustration

By Mark Bertrang, The Creator of the Financialoscopy® on Monday, January 7th 2019

2018 left a pit in my stomach.

The fourth quarter was especially negative (September 28th – December 31st):

                                                                      Dow                    - 11.83 %

                                                                     S&P 500             - 13.97 %

                                                                     Nasdaq               - 17.54 %

                                                                     Russell 2000      - 20.51 %

 Where do we go from here?  As I’ve communicated in the past, volatility is the new normal.  I have seen this circus before.  Only the ‘monkeys’ have changed.

2018 annual statements may be a little unsettling.  Please know that our eyes are on your accounts and our goal is to attempt to provide proper diversification for your individual situation.  This is our continued focus for 2019.
