Knowledge To Go Webinar: Crazy Times in the Markets! with Sandy Leeds

Stocks have dropped 20% in 2022. Interest rates have increased, meaning that bonds have also lost value. An index of commodity prices has increased 20%, but earlier in the year it had been up 40%. The dollar has appreciated more than 10% this year. Suffice it to say that there’s been a lot going on. In this webinar, Sandy will talk about the markets, the economy, the Fed, and the world. It will be a fun and fast-moving hour!

Time: 12-1 PM CT

Location: Online via Zoom
