@theMarket: The Market's Winter Storm
By Bill Schmick,
03:28PM / Friday, December 14, 2018
Stocks worldwide have experienced a downdraft since October. All the gains so painstakingly made thus far in 2018 have been erased. Volatility has battered markets with all the severity of a Nor'easter. Next year may prove to be a continuation of the same.   It is interesting that the culprits responsible for this change of heart in the markets have been around for just about all of the past year. Leading the list is Donald Trump. It was our president that decided to wage a trade war against the world. There has been little success in his battle thus far. The prospect of more of the same faces us well into the new year.   The Federal Reserve Bank can also take some blame.

Will we have a white Christmas? Maybe ...

Oh, hey there, winter.

After a snowy Thanksgiving period, there hasn't been much weather to speak of since then. (Except that it's been cold. Not as freezing cold as it was on Thanksgiving and Black Friday, but fairly chilly.)

But this weekend could be different. After an early forecast of rain for Saturday and Sunday, it now appears as if clouds will move in on Saturday and temperatures wil hover just around freezing on Sunday to make the precipitation more of a messy, wintry mix in the Berkshires.

While there is no official winter storm warning as of Friday afternoon, AccuWeather predicts a wintry mix in the morning Sunday, followed

Submitted by Edward Jones,
11:50AM / Wednesday, December 12, 2018

Or maybe you will get a sizable tax refund in just a few months. Wherever this money comes from, you will want to put it to good use. Should you use the cash to pay down debts or should you invest it instead?

There's no simple answer, and everyone's situation is different, but here are a few suggestions for helping you make a good choice:

* Evaluate your cash flow. If you already have enough cash to meet your daily living expenses, you might lean toward investing the money,
