Heading into Memorial Day Weekend on what seems to be (for now) a high note in the markets. The major stock indexes are all positive for the week, and looking to add another percent or two before the end of the week. Let’s see if it can start some momentum into next week!
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
- If you pile up all of the headlines right now, you could potentially come to the conclusion that we are in the most uncertain of times. However, Morgan makes the case that our current environment may not be more uncertain than what we’ve already lived through.
- Defining a bull and bear market tends to be rather subjective depending on who you ask. Ben defines the two in his own way in this post, and offers a few pros and cons to some bear market hedges.
- In life, and especially in the financial markets, it can be easy to forget that there are always TWO parties involved with a trade. Ultimately, there is a winner and a loser. Barry writes about ending up on the right and wrong side of those trades.
- Inflation has been one of the hottest topics of the year so far. Everyone wants to know when is it going to be controlled? In this week’s video, Tom discusses the latest update on a key component of inflation… the housing market.
