A lot of headline news has been made so far in 2017.  While it might be entertaining, or interesting, to watch on a daily basis, there are a few large scale questions that should always be in the front of your mind.  Am I still on track to reach my goals?  (If you don’t have goals, I suggest figuring out what they are) Am I saving enough money?  Will I be able to comfortably retire when the time comes?  All of these questions are vastly more important than the day-to-day numbers of the S&P 500 index during the first quarter of 2017.
