More volatility ahead: Your key questions answered

“We expect this choppy, push-pull sort of market to continue until inflation peaks,” says Chris Hyzy, Chief Investment Officer for Merrill and Bank of America Private Bank. In this episode of the Merrill Perspectives podcast, Hyzy explores the many factors driving today’s volatility — from concerns over Federal Reserve rate hikes to the economic effects of the Ukraine conflict, lockdowns in China and recession worries in Europe.


He also provides useful historical perspective and reviews four primary questions he believes are key to where the markets and economy could head from here.  And he offers ideas you could consider now to help reduce the level of risk in your portfolio and smooth the effects of volatility.
