71. That’s the number of days this year that the S&P 500 hit an all-time high (with one partial day left). It’s a record number of days going back to 1995, and a sign that, despite the market fears on a day-to-day basis, the market is likely in rally mode for some time to come.
While many discount the stock market’s drop in March 2020 as an aberration due to the initial Covid outbreak, stocks did enter a bear market at a record pace last year, and also had their sharpest bounce back from a bear market. If history is any guide, given how bull markets tend to last for a number of years, 2022 should continue the trend, although perhaps at a slower rate.

Over 30 percent of all money created in the United States occurred in 2020. That massive jump in the money supply, dubbed M1, leads several to expect inflation. It’s why assets like gold and Bitcoin performed well in 2020. But the flip side is that economic shutdowns led to less spending, missed rent payments, and other spending. That creates deflationary pressures. Anyone living in New York or San Francisco can point to dropping home values as the population heads for less dense living in the suburbs — or other states.
The biggest trend of 2021 may be the push and pull between inflation and deflation. Of course, given how long an economic recovery can take, that trend may not be fully apparent until 2022 — and 2021 may surprise investors with how boring it was after 2020’s excitement.

#1 Resource You Need in 2019
How you do anything is how you do every-thing. And everything starts with you. If you are stressed, overwhelmed, have mental clutter, and are missing structure in your days, then your business, personal life, and health are going to suffer. I know the feeling. Earlier this year I was so over-worked, overwhelmed and stressed that I started having anxiety attacks. One day it got so bad I thought I was having a heart attack. I had to do something about it…
Over the next 6 months I started creating a better structure to my days and got more disciplined in my sleep patterns, workflow, and health. I must thank my family, my wife Caryl, and especially my good friend Bill Jones. But, it was not until mentor and author, Jeffery Combs sent me a book entitled “The Procrastination Cure – 7 Steps to Stop Putting Life Off,” that things really improved.
I highly recommend this book if you are looking to build better habits and better structure in your days so that you can get more done with-out feeling stressed and overwhelmed.
The very best to you and your family in 2019 and beyond!
P.S.: Get the book! [I’ll leave you with a quick review of the book put together by Patrick Brigger which I found for you on YouTube!]
