George Fisher’s Market Comments:
“The markets will ignore the problems of the fiscal cliff – until they don’t”. This is a common theme voiced by many investors. It seems the election maintained the status quo of a divided government. The most likely resolution to the fiscal cliff will be no resolution – or rather a compromise that will kick the resolution into next year with some tax increase and some spending cuts – enough for both sides to claim “Victory” to their constituents. However, serious tax and entitlement/spending reforms will be put off for another day. Supplement this with a new round of debt ceiling concerns in February 2013 and it would appear that the New Year may be a mirror of this year.Read More
