If you are looking for a some timely insights on where the economy and markets head from here, my conversation today with Dr. David Kelly, CFA Managing Director and Chief Global Strategist for J.P. Morgan Asset Management hits the mark. We cover arguments for why the bull market may continue and why a bear market could set in. We also share some thought provoking points for individuals sitting in the proverbial conference room making decisions about their investment menu design. And towards the end, don’t miss a great new quote, well it was from a Greek philosopher so not sure if that counts as new but, it involves a man and a river, pretty good analogy for where we are today in the market and economy.
