1. The Anatomy of a Market Correction

It doesn’t take too long listening/reading/watching financial journalism to get the message that a bear market or a correction or a recession is lurking around the corner. They might be correct and they might not be correct. But we can use history as a guide to understand cycles and trends in this graphic to understand what is likely to happen. (You can search “The Anatomy of a Market Correction” by the Visual Capitalist for this posting.)

2. Understanding Basic Estate Planning Documents

Keeping your estate plan up to date is often overlooked and can be relegated to the bottom-of-the-pile of things to do. But (this piece) keeps the process and understanding-the-basics simple and easy to understand. You may find this worth hanging on to for the future and even passing on to a family member.

3. What's the Deal With Inflation?

A rise in the cost of living over time is quite normal. And if we think of ‘moderate inflation’ as sign of a healthy economy, we have the basis for an appropriate understanding of long-term growth of assets. Ben Carlson wraps this concept up quite well in this piece, “A Wealth of Common Sense.” One of the mandates of the Federal Reserve is to maintain a stable price level for the US economy. For today, it is fair to say that a moderate rise in our general cost of living is normal and to be expected as a healthy sign.
