Two huge stock market drops last week. Interest rates for ten-year bonds nearly the same as for three-year bonds. Housing prices at highs not seen since the giddy and deranged time of 2007-2008. Nervous Wall Street types whispering the dreaded “R” word “recession”.
If you actually have extra money putting it into stocks looks like a bad strategy. You can go to a bank or a broker and get a year CD that pays around 2.5% interest. Compare that to stocks that lost four or five percent value in just one week.
