What The Wealth Ep #82: What Happens Next?

How can we plan for the rest of the year? What should we be looking out for financially as we move into the second part of 2023? There have been lots of questions and concerns about where the market has been and the last 18 months where interest rates, inflation, and market changes have been difficult. In this episode, I will share what we see coming in the short-intermediate term and discuss some important things to think about when it comes to the markets in the final half of this year.

Inflation numbers, the debt ceiling, and more have put the markets a bit on edge and although the posturing is strong on both sides, I’ll share what I think it will all come down to and how that might affect you. Listen in to hear my thoughts on the outcome of the recent bank failures and what’s going on with the long market draw-down.
