Unprecedented Times

We are in an unprecedented time in our country, and really, throughout the world. So much is unknown, but at Shelton Financial Group, our primary concern is, and always will be, the health and well-being of our clients, our staff and our business vendors. Words and phrases like “social distancing”, “flattening the curve”, and “shelter in place”, are just a part of our everyday existence. Everyone is confused, everyone is concerned, and I think everyone wants to do the right thing during this time of turbulence.

Unpredictable, uncontrollable, and unexplainable

The stock market is unpredictable, uncontrollable, and unexplainable. Many investors want to believe there is some crystal ball or magic wand that can give us a “heads up” when it comes to market declines. The truth is that sometimes markets go down without warning and without great notice and more than expected. But if you’re honest, the truth is that sometimes the markets go up without warning and without great notice and more than expected and THAT is what keeps us all coming back.

Jingle Bells and the Stock Market

I’m writing on Monday morning, March 9, 2020. Is this market okay? How bad can it get? Will it recover? All fair questions. How about some data. From peak to trough (that means high point to low point) in the 4th quarter of 2018, the Dow was down 5036 points or -18.77%. Culminating with a Christmas Eve capitulation. Can you say Merry Christmas!!
