The Only Forecast That Matters

Posted January 1, 2023
Most investors love economic and market forecasts. With the uncertain and volatile markets, our brain craves some sort of idea of what the future holds. But the markets are unpredictable – evidenced by the fact that no one can consistently predict them accurately. Of course, a certain forecast will be right from time to time, just like a broken clock. But market forecasts are unreliable, no matter what your brain tells you.
Unlike market and economic forecasts, my forecast is reliable and robust because it is based on enduring investment truths and investor behavior. These factors are more dependable than market outcomes and more important to an investor’s well-being.
My Forecast For 2023
In full disclosure, the following forecast is nearly identical to my forecast from last year and years before that.
Conviction, patience, and discipline are virtues every investor should develop. They aren’t easy, yet they are essential for your success. As your advisor, one of my most important roles is helping you ignore the noise and focus on what truly matters to your financial success.
I wish you a prosperous, fulfilling, and happy 2023. Thank you for allowing me to be your trusted partner along the journey.
