We just finished the third quarter of 2019 and markets were up about 1 percent for large stocks and down about 3 percent for small stocks. Trade, tariffs, and political ramblings day-to-day headlines in the midst of a pretty solid U.S. economy overall. Most economic indicators remain solid.

Watching investments on a quarter-to-quarter or even year-to-year basis doesn’t makes sense for nearly all of us. Why? Clients of mine who have been around for a decade or two know that investing is a long-term process that continues for many years.
