Global financial markets posted mixed results during the second quarter of 2018 as investors balanced strong earnings, an improving labor market and better economic growth here in the U.S. with political turmoil in Europe and deteriorating trade relations worldwide. We present a few highlights from the 2Q18 below: Despite heightened geopolitical rhetoric, the S P 500, the Dow Jones Industrial Average, and the technology-heavy Nasdaq Composite continued to trade near record highs amid positive economic data and strong corporate earnings. On the economic front, the Federal Reserve raised interest rates by 25 basis points in June to a range of 1.75% to 2%, and upgraded their assessment of U.S. economic growth. Consequently, the FOMC now anticipates raising interest rates four times in 2018.

3 Tips For A Healthy Summer Its finally summer! Something we wait for all year in Cleveland. And, while you should definitely take some time to have fun, recharge, and spend time with family and friends, here are three health tips that will help you have a healthy summer! 1. Eat More Berries: An easy way to improve your diet this summer, is to have a cup of mixed fresh berries every day.

Following the strong start to the year, additional positive performance slowed in the second quarter as markets digested a tremendous amount of economic and geopolitical news. However, despite elevated levels of uncertainty throughout global financial markets, returns overall remain robust year-to-date. A few highlights from the second quarter: U.S. Equity markets added to gains from earlier in the year at a slower pace as compared to the first quarter. Economic data was mixed and overall GDP results fell short of expectations. Despite uncertainty, corporate earnings were stronger than anticipated which helped push equity markets to new highs. International equity markets were positive during the quarter and outperformed their domestic counterparts. Economic data in Europe continues to come in better than expected, and could be signaling a period of sustained growth. Emerging Market equities posted some of the strongest gains of all in countries such as China, India, and Brazil, which

There are some proven tax planning tips that can be applied each and every year. They are highly effective and proven to minimize your tax bill. Here is a brief highlight of the tax planning maneuvers you should be considering for 2016: 1)Defer Income: Income is taxed in the year it is received. Consider deferring year-end bonuses from employers to 2017 if that income will place you in a higher tax bracket in 2016. If you are self-employed, you may consider delaying billings until late December so that the payments are not received until 2017. Also consider accelerating income into 2016 if you will be in a lower tax bracket in the current tax year. 2)Charitable Deductions: You may wish to consider donating appreciated property (stocks or property) in lieu of cash. You achieve the double tax benefit of deducting the contributed asset at Fair Market Value and avoiding paying the capital gains tax on the built-up appreciation. 3)HSA: Consider setting up and contributing to a Health Savings
