The NextGen Wealth Weekly Roundup November 22, 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! THE NEXTGEN WEALTH WEEKLY ROUNDUP 11 22 2019

 Stocks are up slightly today as a week filled with the progress of U.S. and China trade talks, or lack thereof, came to a close. Trump said that a deal between the two economies was “potentially very close” after Chinese president said Beijing is working to “try not to have a trade war”, but may fight back if necessary. 

Markets globally have been up and down with the uncertainty about whether these two will reach a deal soon, or at least stop it from escalating any further. 
 
New U.S. tariffs are set to hit December 15th on many Chinese-made items that may be on a lot of holiday shopping lists. Many tariffs in place already have hurt manufacturing around the world, so this could potentially do even more damage to businesses. 
 
Despite gains early today, the S&P 500 is still on pace to close with a loss, and if it stays this way, it would be the first down week for the index in the last seven. This would end it’s longest winning streak in two years. 

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.
