“The market is the most efficient mechanism anywhere in the world for transferring wealth from impatient people to patient people.”
— Warren Buffett

The bond, stock, and real estate markets are still reacting to inflation, recession, and interest rate hike concerns. The market doesn’t like uncertainty, which we continue to have a fair amount of right now. The primary debate is whether the Fed rate hikes will be effective in taming inflation before it becomes entrenched or if the rate hikes will cause a recession or not.
While the Fed is being flexible and committed to bringing inflation back to its 2% target (which is good), the reality is that we’re going to see short-term volatility.
In our opinion, the best way through this for our clients is to maintain a long-term perspective, have confidence in your overall financial plan, and stick to the investment strategy we have developed together.
