Investment Unknowns.

8 minutes

Let me explain.

From my perspective the markets are currently living in a time of “known unknowns.” That is we know that there are certain things that will play out in a way we don't exactly know, but we feel comfortable that we can handle any eventuality. In the stock market there are always a whole list of things like this. We don't know, for instance, what the comings corporate earnings will be. But we're comfortable, that they will fall within an anticipated range. Next week we will get the latest number on the Gross Domestic Product, we don't know exactly what that will be, but current estimates are that it will be about the same as the last estimate, a 2.1% growth rate. And we are comfortable with that. Same with interest rates, also announced next week. We're comfortable that they will remain about where they are.

And so it goes throughout the financial world right now. We think we know what lies ahead, and we're reasonable assured that it will be a smooth ride ahead.
