Market Weekly Recap 3-01-2021

Thank you for sharing!

Last week, the stock market sold off for the second week in a row, as rapidly rising interest rates create headwinds and continue to drive inflation concerns. Mortgage rates saw their largest one-week increase in nearly a year, and we got an update on the new housing market, labor market, as well as consumer spending for January. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell testified before Congress, and the House passed the $1.9 trillion stimulus bill. This market weekly recap covers details on all of the above, and you can find all the previous Monday Market Update’s here.

    Learning so much in the little time since I subscribed to your newsletter! Do you do any private financial planning? I’m having a hard time finding someone that genuinely sees my situation and helps me needs, instead of theirs.

      Thank you! I’m so glad you are enjoying it and find it informative… I do not do any private financial planning at this time. Just not enough hours in the day, and also I’m not licensed, insured or set up to do so currently. I also find I can use my time to help and educate more people, at no cost to them, through blogging and now podcasting.
