“’Lockdown’ is what the stock market has been on since mid-February. We’ve got multiple terrorist attacks around the world, we’ve launched a U.S. missile strike on Syria, a battle fleet is headed for the Korean Peninsula, and the stock market just hangs in there.” ~ Jeffrey Saut, Raymond James investment strategist likening the market to The Twilight Zone.

This is our third and last review of our 1st Quarter Wrap Up. 

This week I will review the charts for the 1st quarter and year-to-date performance in the global fixed income, equities and commodities markets.

I don’t believe in trying to predict the future – but I do believe in sound risk management and being prepared. To help you do that, every year we prepare scenarios. I will talk a bit about how to use the scenarios we published in the Annual Wrap Up to help you with your investment strategy as well as family risk management. See my latest post Checklist: Family Risk.

In Money & Markets this week I will discuss the latest in financial and geopolitical news. If you are struggling to keep up, this weekly round up can help.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review Meet John Doe,  one of Frank Capra’s movies that reminds us that we don’t need governments to create successful communities and economies. Indeed, we have the power and resources to do it ourselves.

Talk to you Thursday!
