The Prudent Retiree - October 2016

“You Can’t Hurry Love, You Just Have To Wait.”

-The Supremes

The Supremes were one of Motown’s super groups in the 1960’s and 70’s. How many women remember pushing their hand out, dancing to “Stop in the name of love”?

The Fed has certainly not hurried rate increases. Inflation is low, global investment rates are even lower and the economy is still a bit sluggish. If you’re hoping for a 5% CD, you’ll just have to wait. Probably for a long time. Low interest rates have been positive for the stock market. The Fed will most likely vote for a rate increase before year end. That will be one for the entire year, rather than the four they projected for 2016. You can’t hurry rates.

The election is upon us. Dire consequences are forecast. No predictions here. Neither would probably win if Neither was on the ballot. Prudent Retiree does not know what the market response will be, but will be prepared to take appropriate action. It’s hard to imagine how we got here. Whether we wind up stronger together or making America great, the best advice comes from the original Tiny Tim, “God bless us, every one.”
