This quarter has been disappointing for investors, and volatility has continued. US small-cap, large-cap, and international stocks all declined. Bonds also went down. The rising interest rate environment that began when the calendar flipped from 2021 to 2022 continues to be the main driver of economic and financial markets.
Being invested in the market has proved to be a wild ride this year. You may have already realized some significant capital gains and capital losses, but your 2022 tax situation is not final until year-end.
