2024 begins in the most “normal” environment since before the pandemic with respect to interest rates, inflation, and stock valuations. We believe that 2024 may be a volatile year for three primary reasons: o The year-end 2023 rally was driven by enthusiastic expectations for lower interest rates in 2024. Inflation may prove more resilient, leading to rates remaining higher and investor expectations needing to be adjusted in the short term. o The Presidential Election has the potential to be very contentious, and election years tend to be more volatile (not necessarily negative, just volatile). o There are two wars in the Middle East and Eastern Europe ,with the potential for a third in Taiwan.
