4 Terrifying Economic Trends — And Why Investors Shouldn't Panic


As Christmas approaches, many investors would no doubt like to take a little time off from obsessing over the ups and downs of the market, and just enjoy time together with the people they love. Besides, late December ought to be a pretty quiet time on Wall Street anyway, right? If only.

In this episode of Motley Fool Answers, hosts Alison Southwick and Robert Brokamp attempt to enjoy their holiday tradition of reciting The Night Before Christmas, but a tetrad of totally terrifying financial news items gets in the way of their fun. If the business news has you worried, though, perhaps Bro can ease your concerns by explaining why he’s less concerned. They’ll also lift your spirits with their annual gift exchange, and share some cool postcards sent in by you, the listeners.

    Stumbled across this channel while viewing other investment related channels, and this is the first video I saw. After 5 seconds I stopped and will not subscribe or return. That screeching woman is dreadful. No thank you.
