Outlook 2024: A Turning Point

Outlook 2024: A Turning Point

In 2024, LPL Research believes markets will make a definitive turn to a more recognizable place. En route, the transition will be marked by meaningful shifts in a few key areas. Inflation is going down. The risk of a recession is bubbling up again as the effect of post-pandemic stimulus wanes. And the end of the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) rate-hiking campaign is indeed upon us.

Where the last two years had investors focused on inflation, market volatility, and striving for a sense of economic balance, we now can expect to see some return to the previous status quo—that is, a less-stringent Fed, normalizing inflation, and a slower growth environment. We’ve seen indications of this reset—receding inflation, rates stabilizing, more modest equity market performance, and go-forward economic forecasts that have been dwindling. From LPL Research’s perspective, this turning point for the markets and economic landscape can be characterized as a return to familiar economic and market patterns, leaving behind the volatility of policy and economic swings experienced in recent years, and moving toward a steadier environment.

LPL Research’s Outlook 2024: A Turning Point provides insight and analysis into next year’s opportunities, challenges, and potential surprises. We understand that making progress toward long-term financial goals requires a strong plan and sound advice. The insights in this report, combined with guidance from me, will help position you to navigate this turning point and work toward achieving your objectives.

The CARES Act Key Components



The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Recovery Act


Dear Valued Clients,

I hope this note finds you and those around you safe and healthy during this unprecedented time. You may be aware at the end of March, President Trump signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act and it is now law. This is the third piece of legislation that Congress has passed to help Americans deal with the economic impacts of the coronavirus outbreak.

This historic and sweeping legislation was created to help keep workers paid and employed, allows businesses to remain operational and makes necessary health care system enhancements to stabilize the economy. We want to make sure you are aware of certain provisions designed to help you.

  • Retirement Assistance – Retirement plan withdrawals for COVID-19 affected individuals, access to plan loans, waiver of RMDs for 2020 and allowance for plan amendments
  • Individual Assistance – 2020 tax recovery rebates for incomes up to $99,000 for singles and $198,000 for married couples
  • Small Business Assistance – Paycheck protection program, loan assistance, loan forgiveness, employee retention credit and tax benefits

Attached is a one page overview of these key provisions and FAQs related to each of the key highlights.

We’re here for you via phone or email and look forward to discussing the CARES Act or answering any other questions to help you with your financial needs.

Please feel free to contact me at (219) 462-3630 any time.
