“Should I be worried?”Stock Market Question_small.jpg

In my world, you get this phone call on a regular basis. I’m actually glad to get it, because it gives me an opportunity to remind folks what we are doing and what we are not doing.

“The market was doing so well last year, now it’s really slowed down. Should I be worried?”

He was right. The stock market did extraordinarily well in 2017, much to the surprise of nearly everyone. Depending on which measuring stick you use, the United States stock market was up anywhere from 21% to 28% in 2017.

Now, things seem to have taken a pause. Is it North Korea? Or corn prices? What about all these new tariffs? The new tax law? The president? The congress? The Illuminati exercising secret mind control over the markets?

By Byron Moore, posted February 20th, 2014

Question:  I just started a new job and the HR guy says I should put as much as I can into our 401K plan. He says I won't miss the money out of my paycheck, but I've got some debts I need to get paid off. Besides I really don't know anything about investing. I like the idea of getting it automatically done so I don't have to think about it. What do you think?

Answer: We love it when things are convenient.
