Not goodbye, however see you quickly
After scripting this week’s column, I’ll now not make sense. My spouse will provide that I ended making sense a very long time in the past, however that could be in a common sense 🙂
This might be my final installment for the “Making sense of the markets” column. I’m stepping apart. The weekly column will proceed with a brand new author, quickly to be introduced.
“Making sense of the markets” has been the most effective expertise of my funding writing profession. As it’s possible you’ll know, in my earlier life, I used to be an promoting author and inventive director. These are two drastically completely different writing types and disciplines.
In promoting, we’re storytellers, the place creativity and shock guidelines. That stated, the promoting expertise tremendously helped me put together for my funding adviser stint at Tangerine Investments. The mixed promoting and advisor expertise maybe created a unique form of perspective and background that formed my funding writing.
It additionally helps that I’ve been a self-directed investor and an ETF nut for a lot of many years. Some may argue it made me well-suited to write down a weekly column overlaying the loopy world of inventory markets and different investments. “Making sense of the markets” has by no means been boring. There may be extra drama, shock, twists and turns, and loopy characters than your typical Hollywood blockbuster.
It, maybe, helped that I began this column because the COVID-19 was simply getting warmed up. The continuing pandemic launched a brand new dynamic that markets and buyers have by no means seen earlier than. There was by no means a boring week.
I’m not certain if markets are at all times this fascinating or the unbroken string of fascinating weeks is pandemic-related. The writing of this column actually made me take a look at the markets a lot nearer than ever earlier than.
It was an unbelievable studying expertise.
