In this commentary, I will not revisit the numerous “improbable” events that have happened this year, because many were too real and continue to be emotional and disturbing. But, suffice it to say that what we thought may have been “impossible” actually did happen. And, I am confident that I speak for all of us when I say we need to have 2020 over! It is a year we don’t want to continue, duplicate or much less remember in our lives.
Instead, I will focus on the markets and economy today, and where we might be headed.
Finally, please understand that the sky is not falling . . . nor, will is it likely to completely cave in regardless of who inhabits the residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

That quote came from legendary Los Angeles Dodgers’ announcer, Vin Scully, on October 15, 1988, after Kirk Gibson hit a walk-off, game-winning home run in Game 1 of the World Series. As much as that one swing of the bat was so electrifying for the sports world, the quote remains true today, but for far different reasons that have impacted our lives in 2020.
