I wanted to take the politics out of the impeachment talks and discuss how it could affect the markets.For those of us who follow the markets closely and are always looking for opportunities, this is the kind of thing that might open the door. I have no idea if there will be any effect on the markets or any added volatility, but the beauty of this is that it is officially on the menu, so we know about it and it gives us all a chance to prepare. Whether you are interested in equities, fixed income, Commodities, etc., we all have time to ready our plans and be ready to react shall we get a roller coaster ride. I know I always have a list of stocks that I am interested in but feel are over priced, so maybe I will get a chance. Perhaps you own a lot of fixed income and there is a rush into treasurys driving yields lower? Maybe you can sell at a nice profit as opposed to holding on and collecting paltry sized interest payments. Maybe this effects the trade talk with China which might cause moves in oil, gold, copper etc. Whatever comes of this, the fact that the genie is officially out of the bottle gives a chance to get our ducks in a row. Perhaps it turns into a yawn, but for those who are always looking for opportunities this might open up the doors for us. Stay alert b/c no one cares more about your money than you do!
