Ron Sloy, CFP of Sloy, Dahl & Holst, Inc. a financial services firm located in Portland, Oregon, give his analysis of the current market landscape. As expected, stability in the financial markets has returned in November. During October we mentioned that the market had bottomed out and it was a great time to purchase. Since that time, the Dow has risen around 2,500 points. We think the markets will continue to raise in December and expect a Santa Claus rally in anticipation of the January effect, a rise in the market where funds often reinvest their portfolios.
