Why Bad Things Happen on Mondays: A Short History of Market Crashes

Americans have a long tradition of dreading Mondays. Many of us are jolted back to reality at the start of each week by an alarm clock that signals the end of leisure, relaxation, and time with family and friends. It also marks the beginning of five days of work packed with new projects, deadlines, and expectations.   On Mondays, responsibility and accountability return, and we feel miles from Friday—the coveted moment at the end of each week when we…

A Low Chance of Risk and a High Chance of Ruin

The Cambridge Dictionary defines volatility as “the quality or state of being likely to change suddenly, especially by becoming worse.” This definition can be applied in many areas. In chemistry, volatility is the tendency for a substance to vaporize. In computer science, it’s the risk of catastrophic memory loss. In meteorology, it’s the probability of…

What Follows an Economic Peak? Armageddon?

Nowadays, the word Armageddon is tossed around like a figurative rag doll. While its roots can be traced to Biblical times, it’s often used to describe modern disasters, particularly economic watersheds like recessions and depressions. According to the New Testament in the Bible, Armageddon is actually a place where the armies of good and evil…

Mixed Signals from the Tightrope: The Fed in 2019

Will they or won’t they? When it comes to raising the federal funds rate, this is always the $64 million question.   The federal funds rate is the interest rate that banks charge each other. While it is generally considered to be the most important rate in the world of finance, it is also a crucial variable in the life of the average American household, the financial markets, and the broader economy.  The…

What Are Gold Prices Trying to Tell Us?

They say everything happens for a reason. This is true in life as well as in the economy. And it’s particularly the case in the commodities market. Gold prices are at a seven-month high. So what is the precious metal trying to tell us?  While gold essentially trades on supply and demand, it is also a store of wealth, a historical safe haven, and a way to diversify risk. It has an inverse relationship with paper assets like…

“Darkening Skies”: Global Storm Clouds are Gathering

While the United States grapples with the longest government shutdown on record, there seems to be little common ground among lawmakers and no likely deal in sight.   Some 800,000 government workers just missed their first paycheck since parts of the government were shuttered—and there’s increasing pressure on both sides of the political aisle to come together for the sake of the clerical, technical, administrative, and professional workers at agencies like the Departments of Homeland…

2019 with red arrow descending and cracking ground

A New Year. An Old Portfolio. A Questionable Outcome.

The holidays are over. Christmas trees have been tossed to the curb, and we’re finally back to work. It’s 2019, the 19th year of the 21st century and the last year of the 2010s. We are customarily knee-deep in resolutions to lose weight, quit smoking, and get more sleep—but also up to our eyeballs in the fallout from 2018.    It was a tough year for anyone with a savings or retirement…
