Hosted by Creative Planning Director of Financial Education Jonathan Clements and President Peter Mallouk, this month’s podcast looks closely at why the markets are performing in ways that are surprising – and even counterintuitive – to what many investors and observers might expect. On a macro level, Peter and Jonathan discuss how the upcoming election season may influence the markets, and on a micro level, steps that individuals and families can take if they’re feeling insecure in their employment or their ability to meet their monthly expenses.
