Demystifying The Market: Is It Time To Jump Back In?
For the last few years, everywhere you looked, you saw signs of the recession. In our neighborhoods with foreclosures, in our places of work with layoffs, and in the massive cuts to consumer spending, the doom and gloom message has been very consistent. Due to these factors, many investors have chosen to play it safe when trying to determine where to invest their hard-earned dollars!
Thankfully, the U.S. is very good at making lemonade out of lemons and recent turns in the market are now pointing towards recovery and growth. Some promising changes we’ve seen are:
• Private-sector job creation and growth continuing
• Unemployment rate dropping for five consecutive months
• Interest rates remain low into the foreseeable future
• Inflation is moderate and historically low
• U.S. consumers are starting to spend again
While we envision some volatility through 2012 and recommend investing with a more conservative approach during this time, these points are promising for the long-term stability of market investments.
No matter what the market is doing, Americans can no longer put off planning for college, retirement, and the golden years. There is no time like the present to review your personal situation and plan for your future.
