Monthly Market Monologue - March 2024

February 29, 2024

In this month's edition of our Monthly Market Monologue, we discuss the improving market breadth. The Value Line Geometric Index appears to be ready to break out of a two year range. Small-Caps, as well, have again broken out of their two year trading range.

While this is good news, this does not diminish the possibility that we could see a return to a stagflationary environment, like what the country experienced in the late '60s and through the '70s. Are you prepared for that?
