ETF Market Commentary

View from the Hill, stocks, bonds, cash, commodities, real estate, volatilityAt some point, investors will have their fill of stocks and undergo a bad case of indigestion when it comes to reconciling the differences between expectations and reality. Apparently, post-Thanksgiving is not that time. There will be no further comments today as I am still trying to digest all the euphoria surrounding the prospects of Trump’s pro business and fiscal stimulus policies yet to be approved by Congress and implemented, not to mention yesterday’s Thanksgiving dinner.

Enjoy Black Friday and the beginnings of what is hopefully a happy and safe holiday season.
