MARKET BAROMETER

An eye view of Stock Market Indicators: this month | previous month | % changes over 5 years.

As of June 29, 2023:

  • VIX (volatility index) – the fear gauge: 13.51 | 19.32 | -15.85%
  • S&P 500: 4,376.86 | 4,151.28 | + 61.01%
  • VTSAX – Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund: USD 105.57 | 100.09 | +54.48%
  • BND – Vanguard Total Bond Market Index Fund: USD 72.99 | 72.23 | -7.83%
  • VNQ – Vanguard REITS – Real Estate: USD 83.11 | 78.40 | +2.04%

There is optimism in the present market (low VIX). Note: optimism is a sentiment. Too optimism bring risk. There are calls for a bull market, due to improved prices in the capital market. Overall, we are still far from extremes values in the market cycle.

 

QUOTES

  • HOW TO GET PAID. There are 3 ways to get paid: 1) lie to people who want to be lied to, and you will get rich; 2 tell the truth to people who want the truth and you will make a living; 3) tell the truth to those who want to be lied to, and you will go broke; (Jason Zweig father).
  • WASTING TIME. The most invisible form of wasted time is doing a good job on an unimportant task. (James Clear) 
  • HOLIDAY TIME. Vacation won’t make things better. Changing jobs won’t make things better. Getting the recognition you deserve won’t make things better. Drugs won’t make things better.  The only thing that will make things better is your relationship with yourself. (FS)
