Here’s to a Good New Year

As 2017 comes to an end, all of us here at Conlon Dart want to wish you a Happy New Year.

Now it’s time to get ready for 2018.

Who knows what will happen next year in the stock and bond markets of the world—or for that matter, the underlying economies that drive them? It’s hard to say, but as 2017 ends, we do see at least one bright note here in the U.S. A recent Quinnipiac University poll found sixty-three percent of Americans feel the economy is in either excellent or good shape.

Of course, 2018 will be dominated by political news as states and municipalities hold elections, and pundits are already offering their predictions. This fun article from polling site fivethirtyeight.com mentions the positive U.S. economy statistic from Quinnipiac and also contains lots of early election polling information.

Regardless of your political bent, you should be able to find something to cheer about as you ring in in the new year.

See you in 2018.
