Marshall Wealth IQ is aimed at sharing insightful financial market and economic data in easy to visualize charts with brief analyses. This commentary isn’t designed as a call to investment action, but rather as a source to help you feel better informed about current events in today’s market and the underlying trends impacting current wealth.

Wealth IQ | April 2024

The confidence that permeated markets since the Fall has been given a reality check in recent weeks as factors that helped drive the powerful 2023 year-end rally have shifted from a tailwind to a headwind. Add geopolitical risk to the fray, and suddenly markets are facing a ‘wall of worry’ as investors grapple with staying invested vs. taking profits.

In investing, we are often reminded that financial markets and economies differ. This dynamic seems true today, as
one of the biggest challenges markets face appears to be an economy that is too strong. Admittedly, that is likely as strange a sentence to read as it is an unusual one to type. However, with financial markets losing sight of the broader economic forest for the narrower narrative trees, recent volatility isn’t all that surprising.

It’s impossible for anyone to know with certainty what will happen today, tomorrow, or even a minute from now. Investment involves risk and volatility; it’s why long-term investors have historically been rewarded with excess returns relative to cash. Our investment department monitors market data and works with our wealth advisory teams to right-size portfolios should something change relative to long-term trends. In the meantime, we’ll continue to share financial and economic data we believe is insightful and relevant to your wealth to help you feel informed.

Thank you for reading; please be well and stay healthy.
