Good morning all – and happy Saturday!
I’m in an airport lounge gearing up for a quick weekend getaway, so I will keep it short and sweet this time around.
The good news is that we had a pretty decent week in the markets.
The bad news is that we are still in a bear market – and no one (no matter what they tell you) knows how things will pan out from here onwards.
The best we can do is take an educated guess – and my own guess is that between inflation, interest rate rises, a war, and a potential recession, we are still far away from being out of the woods.
Which also happens to be good news – because the absolute best time to invest is WHILE we are in the proverbial woods, not when it’s an absolute no-brainer because “stocks only go up”.
Next week, I’ll talk through some mental frameworks for navigating the current stock market environment.
In the meantime, I hope you have a fantastic weekend. Kick back, relax, and enjoy the top-notch personal reads below!
