In this stock market podcast update I talk about the two key events to look for this week in the markets.
The first is the Wednesday FOMC meeting. Such meetings often bring short-term volatility to the markets.
The second is the upcoming Dec 15th trade deal deadline. There is no sign of a China/US trade deal and Trump said he would impose more tariffs on the 15th if no deal is made. Will he do that or kick the road down the road for past the election?
I also talked about how fear actually influences people’s trading and investing decisions and how it will likely drive the markets in the final two weeks of this year by causing people to buy in fear and not sell in it like you might think.
