Not only are geopolitical tensions on the rise, we are seeing a slow down of the nearly decade long bull run in the markets. Fundamental numbers continue to bode well for investors, but at some point the government is going to rip off the band aid that was saving the economy from the housing crisis, and we’ll see how the U.S. economy really is. Valuations continue to be high and consumers are spending. This is all because consumers do not fear the market or a recession.
