The NextGen Wealth Weekly Roundup January 4, 2019

Welcome to the weekly roundup where I share with you interesting articles from across the web. I hope you enjoy and absolutely feel free to share and pass along.

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 and an awesome start to 2019...even though we are only four days in!THE NEXTGEN WEALTH WEEKLY ROUNDUP 1 4 19

If you’re anything like me, it takes about a day to get back into the swing of things with the time off from the holidays. The randomness of the holidays throws my routine off just a little bit.

And apparently, it’s doing the same thing with the stock market right now. Wow, the roller coaster ride has definitely continued into the new year.

In the first day of trading, stocks opened down over 1% but rallied back to positive territory by the end of the day. However, things reversed quickly after the close with Apple’s announcement of lower revenues coming which resulted in a number of indices being down over 2% yesterday.

I think we’ll continue to see a volatile market through January. With that being said, though, it’s perfectly normal for the markets to experience extreme volatility from time to time. It’s just part of it of getting superior returns to other investments over the long-term.

There’s no reason to do anything drastic and, if nothing else, it’s a good time to start deploying some of that cash you may have had sitting on the sidelines. As the great investors will tell you, it’s always a good idea to be buying when everyone else is selling...even though it might not feel like it.

In the meantime, check out some of these gems I found from this past week. Enjoy the weekend and find some time to relax.
