October is Nearly Over. WOO! HOO!

» Posted by on Oct 29, 2018 in Announcements, Shop Talk, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Most everyone has said, and with good reason, that typically October is the most volatile month of the year. We’ve seen that hold true this year. I have commented often how much the market place doesn’t like uncertainty. This is truly exacerbated by many more things than any other time this year.  Let’s look at a few:

  1. Most recently German chancellor Angela Merkel announces she will not seek re-election as party Leader.
  2. Mid-Term U.S. elections have everyone on edge. What and or who will last and will the public end up winning overall?
  3. Continued Geo Political Storm creates “knee jerk” reactions.
  4. Hyped rhetoric about tariffs, China trade talks, and Fed action for the short and long term is always a good mover.

All these things, and others I haven’t touched on, are giving Global Markets that roller coaster effect October is known for. Keep your head, ride the wave, and above all, as many who know me have heard me say, “Risk Not Thy Whole Roll.”

Indices are enjoying a rally overnight. I’m sure many are shopping for value in this market as things have been pretty beaten up. During this week being the anniversary of the ’29, crash we can be glad there are strong fundamentals that should drive longer term value.
