Our Kansas City Financial Planner Weekly Roundup
Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of the NextGen Wealth Weekly Roundup. Hope you’re having a great week!
Once again, we saw stocks hit record highs this week due to a solid start to earnings season and strong global economic data that was released. All three main markets here in the US (Dow, NASDAQ and the S&P 500) were all up 1.5-% going into today.
Some of these can be attributed to the aftermath of the U.S. and China trade deal signing. This trade deal signing is expected to create a sharp increase in the sales of U.S. goods and services to China. Let's hope this is the beginning of the end of the two-year trade war.
However, this does still leave U.S. tariffs on billions of Chinese goods, which is about three-quarters of Chinese imports to the U.S. So, possible tariff reductions will be one thing discussed at later negotiations between the two countries.
So enough of my commentary, let’s jump in and check out some of the best articles I ran across from the past week. Enjoy the weekend and find some time to relax.
