A Bright Spot This Week: Record Dividends
Markets took a turn for the worse this week (narrowly escaping a five-day decline), but how much of it is due to news versus noise? We are currently heading into a quiet time period: The end of the quarter is near, and the next Fed meeting won’t be held until late April. In time periods such as these, we see that even fairly insignificant news items can move the market. On top of skittish investors, this week marked one of the lowest-liquidity weeks of the year.
