Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
‘Say Less’ – Josh Brown – The Reformed Broker
- In a lot of cases, less is more. When it comes to predicting the financial future, it’s something advocate strongly against. Josh writes about how nobody knows how things like the war in Ukraine will end, and trying to make guesses will only end up hurting investors.

‘How War Ripples Through Commodity Markets’ – Ryan Dezember – The Wall Street Journal
- We’ve seen how the war in Ukraine has impacted the equity markets over the last few weeks, but this article focuses on the market for different commodities. From wheat to oil, a handful of commodities have seen their markets take off.
‘Via Negativa (What Should Fund Investors Not Do?)’ – Joe Wiggins – Behavioural Investment
