Welcome to 2010!

Welcome to 2010! The new year has started much like the old year finished with a market steadily moving forward. Whether you believe the market is headed higher (a bull) or the market will go lower (a bear), how should you be playing the market and economy?

I have spent the last month or so researching the trends and patterns of 2009, and in some cases, I have gone back to previous economic downturns to try and find similarities to see how things moved forward. Yes, it is that history buff in me that leads me to research the past, but it is sometimes weird how the present really will look like the past.

Over the next few weeks, I'll be writing about investing options for 2010 (I had a similar post in 2009 that worked out very well - 2009 Investment Options for your 403(b)), the various issues facing President Obama and Congress, and then a post on planning for retirement for those retiring this year.

All in all, I hope that everyone had a great holidays and first two weeks of 2010. I look forward to a great 2010, and as always, if you have questions or comments, please by all means email me. It really is some of your own questions that give me ideas to discuss in future posts.
