Down but not out………

Down but not out………

Ended 2019, in the year of our Lord, with many chocolates, cookies, cakes and all of the extremely negative side effects and consequences.  My body becomes less tolerant to sugar every year.

I did have a 125 day sweets free 2019 though and I keep that on the forefront of my mind.

I’m working on my 2020 goals and “intentions” (a millennial generation term for goals and I am on the back end of that generation, so I might as well speak the jargon). I will update soon.

I’m more concerned at the present moment with the recent upsetting escalations in Iran.

Also, you may consider taking your retirement money, for a time at least, out of the stock market.  Though our President does like to boast of “new daily highs” he fails to caution the uneducated investor about the current and pending volatility catalysts (ie Middle east tensions, Bubble expansion, high corporate and federal debt, lower earnings, repo crisis and a market propped by fed intervention). Apple, the company, can only carry the market for so long and for so far.  So, even though I’m not a financial adviser or economics scholar, nor do I have a lot of money to invest, I would at least caution those that are close to a position of retirement, to have a frank conversation with your financial adviser about being a little more defensive.

More later……Happy new year.
