 October continued a rough stretch for the markets. Brad McMillan explains that “this is a normal pullback that makes sense given financial conditions. From what we see right now, prospects for the market over time are still positive.”

September has continued a tough stretch for the markets, not an unusual pattern, but also not a fun reversal after the strong recovery we’ve experienced this year. It’s a good time to remember that we are in it for the long haul!

We hope you enjoyed the Labor Day weekend. We thought this chart showing annual working hours per worker was very interesting. American workers still labor more than most, but much less than we used to.
