Today, I am wealthier than I have ever been before in my life.
Will this trend continue?
1. Inflation is picking up, as the economy recovers. This will increase prices and squeeze profits somewhat.
2. Interest rates are ticking up as well, as the Fed reduces "quantitative easing". Higher interest rates mean fewer homes sold, fewer cars bought.
3. As stock prices rise, the effective rate-of-return decreases, as with higher interest rates, stocks have to compete with other investments.
