Market Algorithms, Coal in the Stocking & 10 Myths of Retirement Planning

The Money Wise guys are back in the studio on Christmas Eve to share last week’s numbers from Wall Street. The Dow was up 283 points, the S&P 500 was down 8 points, and the NASDAQ was down 208 points. YTD the Dow remains down 8.6%, the S&P 500 is down 19.3%, and the NASDAQ is down 32.9%. We haven’t had a negative December since Q4 of 2018, but we’re looking at some coal in the stocking this year. There was quite a bit of activity in the second to last trading week for 2022, with the algorithms reacting to the Q3 GDP being revised up. The guys discuss why they want to put 2022 in the rearview and never revisit it, what we might expect in 2023, and why you must always approach your investments from a balance philosophy.
