Volatility Expected to Continue…
Like or dislike* the current president (as the view from the middle continues to not make the headlines), his approach to negotiating and unfiltered usage of Twitter is unlike any other politician in recent history. This has played out with the negotiation of tariffs with China and the resulting volatility experienced with the markets.
My belief, not unlike this weekly notables article, is that there is too much at stake for both sides and they will eventually come together on an agreement on tariffs. It just happens that the public is being more exposed to the negotiations process than ever before and there’s an underlying 24/7 news cycle to keep whomever watches up-to-date.
So, expect the the volatility in the markets to continue and keep your focus on things that are both important to you and in your control.
*While I strongly encourage my children not to use the work hate, “Love or hate” was the alternative lead-in which simply better describes the current political climate.

An analyst’s opinion piece that suggests that the timing of this week’s tariff talks with China is not coincidental with the S&P 500 being at all-time highs and President Trump’s highest ever approval ratings.
Triumph has released the new Rocket 3 TFC powered by a 2.5-liter 3-cylinder motor – that’s 2500 cc’s. You could look at it like 3 individual 833cc single-cylinder thumpers all-in-one. The torque numbers are unreal.
