What does all of this mean for you and me as individual savers and investors? Schwab reminds us in their market outlook that “Having a financial plan and an appropriately diversified portfolio are two key first steps for weathering any market environment.

Our team looks forward to welcoming 2020 – whatever the economic winds might bring – because we look forward to helping you navigate the markets within the more important context of your unique financial goals.
