    What are your predictions for the market in 2020?

    In 2019 the SP500 was up about 29%, one of the best ever. Can it continue? Will we see a recession? Will we finally stop gambling with our family's money?

    Election years are always volatile. My finance guy (I'll call him aggresively conservative) seems to think that we are due for a slight return to earth after this year.

    Invested heavily in canned goods and shotguns.

    Also bought some Crown Royal stock given my likely drinking habits the rest of this hoops season.

    Don't fight the fed. We won't see the large gains of last year but we will see gains. I don't anticipate a whole lot of change with Fed rates, most likely outcome is they go lower.

    I pay him to keep quiet about the stacks of cash.

    The insight is free.

    I usually ask my financial guy when I should hedge with gold and lead. He always says it's good to have some of each lying around . . .[​IMG]

    Geopolitical uncertainty is never good for the majority of stocks. Looks like the US government just couldn’t help themselves again in the Middle East so I expect volatility.
