LPL Financial's research team has released its Outlook 2018: Return of the Business Cycle, which consists of financial market forecasts, economic insights and investment guidance for the year ahead. The theme suggests that traditional business cycle drivers are expected to take a larger role in spurring further economic and market growth in 2018, as we've experienced a fundamental shift in the forces behind this continued economic expansion. The Outlook 2018 highlights some of the ways this economic expansion has been unusual thus far, and what we may expect moving forward.
It's important to remember that market fluctuations are likely as changes occur and as always, we emphasize maintaining a long-term perspective and a well-balanced portfolio.
