These days, I’m reminded about the ancient curse: ‘May you live in interesting times’. The origin of the saying is murky, but the meaning behind it has endured—uncertain times can bring stress.

As we approach the election, every day seems to bring more unpredictability and unprecedented news. September month-end showed markets had pulled back slightly; then, they reacted last week to Donald Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis.

Whether this qualifies as interesting times or not, I do know that having a long-term diversified investment strategy in place is the best way to handle market volatility. Also, election changes have historically had little effect on market performance.

As we head into the final months of 2020, let’s discuss your strategy and make sure that it reflects how your goals might have changed this year. We can work together to keep you on track for this year and beyond.

Here are some articles that I found insightful. I’d love to know your thoughts on them.
