Problems with cash flow? Unfortunately you're not alone. And the situation is only going to get worse. If the FED has their way, we should see the beginnings on inflation along with rising interest rates. This will make things like household expenses, food, and everything else you can think of get more expensive. However, there's a bright side for investors. Historically stocks have gone up along with inflation, as long as there are no sudden burst of news, including a rapid move in interest rates. If you're invested you may benefit with some capital appreciation as a result of general increases in inflation. Unfortunately, you may also see some volatility as his normal during these periods. Other good news for investors is the option of incorporating asset allocation to your portfolio. This may help reduce risk while maintaining a strong rate of return on your investments. If you're already working with a financial advisor, this may be something that you're already doing.
