After an unusual two-year period of calm in the stock market, 2018 has seen a return to volatility.  Our next guest says that as a result, he has a lot of investors asking where do we go from here.

Mike Switzer interviews Doug English, a certified financial planner with ACT Advisors in Greenville and Charleston, SC and frequent market prognosticator on this program.

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
