January 2023 Market Brief:  

Happy New Year! Are we heading into a recession? It sure looks like it. We’ve been here before, and while it most likely will be painful, there are still some ways to keep money safe. If you are concerned about the thumbnail picture looking like something out of post-apocalyptic movie, don’t fret. It was actually taken during the Beltway Loop/ Business 40 construction. This is a metaphor to the current situation. As bleak as things may look, a rebuilding can occur and things will be running smoothly again – it’s just a matter of time.

Each month, Craig MoserCFP®, CRPC®, records and produces Market Brief.  The goal is to share his experience and insights related to various financial markets.  This concise overview looks at current performance and trends.  It touches on current events and how they could impact investment portfolios.  Commentary also provides comparisons and contrasts related past performance.

(Just keep in mind past performance is used as a benchmark or point of reference.  It isn’t a guarantee of future results.)

Craig’s discussion provides updates on indexes such as the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average.  In addition, he reviews different sectors including utilities, energy, industrials, technology, health care, real estate and more.  He explains different topics based on current events and include topics such as interest rates, bonds, inflation and more. Finally, he shares some of the questions and conversations he’s having with clients and colleagues since the previous Market Brief was released.
