Measuring Risk to Gauge Opportunity
In this week’s edition of the LifePro Asset Management Market & Portfolio Review, our head of Wealth Management, Robert Reaburn, will briefly touch on the interim U.S. – China trade agreement and what that means for the market over the short term and overall portfolio positioning into the end of the year.
Robert will also be reviewing the demand for portfolio protection via the put/call ratio and how we use these types of risk barometers to determine when and where to deploy client cash during times of heightened uncertainty. Additionally, we will be looking at the impact of market seasonality of historic stock market returns and how Q4 stacks up from a seasonal standpoint.
We are also going to review stock market valuations and how the current price environment compares relative to the price of bonds. Lastly, we are going to conduct a quick review of the market foundation by evaluating corporate credit spreads and whether the recent move upward in stock prices is being supported by the areas of the market that correlate with healthy economic activity.
