We hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving weekend and are looking forward to the Autumn season with its changing colors and cooler temperatures.
As many of you will know, this has been a difficult week in the markets with most indices posting declines. The Dow Jones, an American index posted it's 3rd largest one day point drop in its history. The largest one day drop happened early this year in February, devastating investors and rattling the world. It recovered within the same calendar year. Markets fluctuate, that is what they do and we can be certain that they will continue to do so moving forward.
