Celebrating Independence on the FourthSubmitted by O'Grady Financial Group on July 3rd, 2019
Happy Fourth of July to you and your family. There’s fireworks and fires to work…for the burgers and dogs.
So enjoy…as we celebrate the original Brexit. This day in 1776 when the thirteen colonies declared their independence from British rule.
Aren’t you glad you’ve declared your independence from mainstream financial media. You don’t have to watch or read…looking for the tip or trend of the day…pretending to foretell the future in hopes of getting you to do something. You know that financial media peddles in short-term advice…and you’re a long-term investor…so you don’t fall for it.
Oh…you may watch for the entertainment value. I really like Stuart Varney in the morning on FBN. It’s kind of fun to know the market, the S&P 500, was up nearly 17.5% the first half of the year. Here’s a tidbit to toss out at the afternoon barbecue…it’s the best start to a year since 1997 for the index.
But wait…there’s still trade tariff talk with China…what’s the Fed going to do with interest rates…and oh no, the report says manufacturing is slowing…and dozens of other crises we know not yet.
But in America…we adapt, we adjust. We pray and persevere through the obstacles. We don’t succumb to the victim mentality that media teases and tempts us with. The crisis du jour has no impact on our long-term financial goals.
So go celebrate your independence, our independence…the attitude that built this country. God bless you…and God bless America.
