National ConferenceNext week is Commonwealth’s National Conference—an annual event where as many Commonwealth advisors as can make it gather together to learn, to network, and, most important, to have a good time together. This year, we are down in Austin again, a wonderful town. I am very much looking forward to it!

Unfortunately, it also requires a lot of work ahead of time, which is what I am doing right now. As such, this will be a very short post. Tomorrow, we will post the monthly Market Thoughts video with a look back at October. It was a scary month, for a number of reasons, but there are also reasons to believe November might be better. So far, that looks likely to be the case. Let’s hope it stays that way.

I will be weighing in from the conference next week. Until then, have a great weekend!
