Life happens.  One moment you are lifted up with news of a growing family, a raise at work or retirement and in the very next moment brought down by the loss of a loved one, a loss of a job, or an injury.  Sometimes we trigger a big life transition when we choose to buy a house, other times it happens out of the blue like a car accident.  With all of the good and bad that comes with living, having a reliable financial planner on your side can make all the difference.

High Expectations for Lower Rates?

Trade issues continued to drag on the market over the past month as President Trump opened a new front against Mexico.  In an effort to curb illegal immigration, President Trump threatened to place 5% tariffs on all imports from Mexico with a plan to scale the tariffs up to 25% by October.  This caught the market by surprise and added fuel to the equity market sell-off that began earlier in May with the escalation of trade tensions with China.

Market Minute - June 18, 2019

There has been a lot written on tariffs over the past few months as news regarding the trade war with China continues to develop.  On another trade front, President Trump threatened to impose 5% tariffs on Mexico but later dropped those plans as a deal was reached regarding immigration.  Trade should remain in the news as President Trump and Chinese President Xi are likely to meet at the G-20 summit in Japan later this month.
