Summer Roller Coaster

June 3, 2011

Like so many sequels, QE2 has been considered by many to be a disappointment. Round two of the controversial and much-debated government strategy of Quantitative Easing, QE2 boils down to what is essentially an approach that literally prints more money. While Quantitative Easing has its supporters and detractors, what is not up for debate is that when the spigot gets shut off on June 30th when QE2 comes to an end, it will have an impact on the markets. And, as we have seen so many times before when a government-backed program comes to an end, the resulting market correction can be dramatic. Take it from me: you don’t want to be on the business end of that “correction”, especially if it is your retirement nest egg at stake. Another ongoing concern is the continued piling up of government debt. There is a lot of Treasury debt out there, and the big question is: who is going to buy it? With global markets undergoing their own crisis of confidence, foreign countries are in no position to do it. If this continues to go unaddressed, the bond market might tumble, and the stock market might be less than robust as well. Worries about higher prices and inflation are also a real concern. The bottom line is (and this applies at all times, but is especially important during periods of potential volatility in the marketplace): do not have money in the market it if you cannot afford to lose it. For retirees and those approaching retirement, that message is particularly vital.
