Market Update: December 6, 2018
This week has grown extremely volatile. Some of the reasons for this are headline news such as questions surrounding the trade war with China. Was there a truce or not? Daily there have been new stories surrounding actions and reactions between the US and China.
As longterm investors, we do not want to react and take action due to this. However, there are also economic indicators that we should pay attention to. The yield curve has inverted. This a negative sign for the economy, and one we are paying attention to. Growth and inflation are slowing. Again, a negative sign that we are paying attention to.
Does this mean we should “run to the hills?” No, not at all. It is a part of the economic and market that should be expected and prepared for. We at Sound, along with you our clients, have prepared for this in all of the work we’ve done together over the years.
Therefore, we will manage the investments based on our rules based models, continue to research and test those, and move forward in a logical way.
Thank you for your trust in us.
