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!
Stocks extended this week’s rally to record highs today, as comments were made by Trump that he had a “very good talk” with the Chinese President Friday, and they hope to arrange a formal signing next month.
The expiration of December stock futures and options, known as quadruple witching, also was helping to push stocks higher today. The impeachment seemed to have little effect on equities, and still saw the major indexes close with gains.
Regardless, stocks had a very solid week and pretty much shrugged off anything negative...which is nice to see this time of the year.
Speaking of this time of the year, if you're anything like me you're starting to get absolutely exhausted with everything going on but can't wait to spend time with family over the holidays.
I hope everyone has their shopping done and is getting ready to take some much needed time off to enjoy time with family and enjoy the holiday season.
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.
