Summer has now ended and we can now get back to business as usual. Once again, President Trump is on the hot seat to get impeached over a phone call with Ukrainian President Wolodymyr Zelensky. It seems like only yesterday from the last impeachment process, how quickly time flies! This time, the accusation on President Trump is of withholding foreign aid in order to gain information about Joe Biden for the upcoming election. After reading the brief, it does not appear to have too much teeth, but the testimony the following day does show a little bending of the rules from the White House, which may show some foul play of others around the President.
After a bumpy May, June brought some summer rays of hope. The global economic highlight was the G20 summit where some of the top world leaders from 19 nations and the European Union gather to discuss current topics and plans for the future. The optimism surrounding this meeting and comments from the US Federal Reserve has eased a bit of the tension in the markets and given investors a few reasons to remain calm.
