In this video, I, Ryan McGuire, Senior Consultant with Oak Wealth Advisors, provide an update on the market for August 2023. I discuss the market growth in July and the subsequent declines in August. Despite the declines, global stock markets have shown resilience throughout the year. I also highlight the importance of monitoring inflation and interest rates as they continue to be significant factors. I emphasize the need for a disciplined approach to investment and the potential risks of emotional decision-making during market volatility. Overall, I stress the importance of a long-term investment strategy for financial growth.
