U.S. markets will take a break tomorrow, closed for Labor Day.

Investors in August observed turbulence as trade dispute concerns continue to rattle the market.

The inverted yield curve signaled another warning last month as well when 10-year Treasury yields dipped below short term rates.

Despite the overall U.S. economy still exhibiting signs of stability, investors can only guess the trajectory especially faced with unprecedented times where the words of a few can carry so much weight.

Ahead this month, some key economic reviews:

  • 9/3 - ISM Manufacturing report

Personal Financial Planning

September is here, and this month is a pivotal moment for investors to take time to review their year-to-date finances before the holiday season rolls in.

More so, despite the uncertainty about the economic and market outlook, investors can take control of their personal finances. Focusing too much on the daily inflows and outflows in the market, stock winners and losers, and market timing can reduce the chances of success. Instead, attention can be turned to clarifying personal goals, developing strategies, and reviewing allocations that fit risk preferences to help achieve desired outcomes.

Planning ahead:

Important dates to remember:

  • 9/16 - Estimated tax payments due
  • 9/16 - 2018 corporate tax return due, if extension filed
