For those of you who are still celebrating or recovering from the New Year, good for you!

Unfortunately, you will be disappointed to learn that the first business day of 2019 resulted in a lot of volatility in the stock market. There were huge gyrations of ups and downs in the market. It felt as if we were riding the old Cyclone Roller Coaster in Coney Island. We held on tightly while we screamed through the sharp dips and laughed through short lived highs, hoping that we would made it safely in one piece. We were exhausted when we got off the ride, but the twinkle in our eye meant we would be back to do it all over again. By the closing bell, the market had settled pretty much where it had opened, but what a ride.
