Taking the first step in a process that you know will require sacrifice can be a difficult step to make. This is true whether your journey is to get in shape or to obtain financial freedom. 

Those facing the first step in a long journey often make one of three choices:

  1. They recognize the journey, would like to reach the destination, but don’t attempt to make that first step.
  2. They make the first step but don’t seek additional guidance to assist them achieve their goal.
  3. They make the first step and seek additional guidance to help give them every advantage they can get.

One thing most of us have in common is we desire financial freedom and for many trading is the vehicle they have chosen to obtain that freedom. If you choose to take that first step and seek additional guidance, we are here for you each and every day to help you on your journey. Let us know where you are in your journey and what we can do to help you reach your eventual destination from where you are today.

Until the trade war is resolved (or until the market stops paying attention to it) one might expect more of the same. From a technical perspective a short-term consolidation pattern may be forming on the broad markets and resistance and support levels will be closely monitored in the coming week.
