MeanwhileGood morning.
The market is starting to get into “wait-and-see” mode for the 2020 Presidential Election.  With the first debate on Tuesday night, stocks stopped their recent recovery rally.
A number of studies have shown that volatility is high going into the election, which likely has many traders on edge.  But often in the markets, when everyone expects the market to do some-thing, it may do the opposite.  For now, that still suggests caution, but that for all the expectation of a big move, none may unfold instead.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Throwing Baby out with the bathwaterEnd of the month wrap-up.  Good Morning.  The Japanese have a term Ikigai, meaning reason for being.  The Finnish have the term Sisu, meaning resilience.  And the Swedes have Lagom, meaning moderation.  All point to popular terms used in popular books and articles to discuss the concept of clutter, whether mental, emotional, or, usually, the physical.

Call it a sign of the 10-plus year bull market, but the rise of books on the subject of clutter, if all collected, would more than clutter a standard bookshelf.  But as long as the economy is good, people will continue to accumulate more stuff… and one of the best investment opportunities may be in self-storage spaces, which continue to see robust demand, and likely not just as extra storage for books on decluttering.

Was history on your-side this week?  Hope so…  😉
