This quarter was the most volatile in my 25 year career. The S&P 500 jumped 5% from the beginning of the year to 2/19 then dropped -34% until the recent bottom on March 23rd at which point the market rebounded 15% by the end of March. The S&P 500 is down 20% since the start of the year and small and mid-cap stocks are down even further. The bond market also declined and had the most volatile ride I have ever seen until the feds put in a “backstop” on March 23rd. Listen and find out where I see value, how I am rebalancing and how I am tax loss harvesting. I also talk about the CARES Act and how it helps reduce taxes on RMDs for retirees and provides funding for small business.
