Yikes. Is 2019 almost over, already?!

Investors are watching a lot in the markets right now between trade and earnings. 

But, what are some of the biggest risks that investors face?

Jeff Marks, senior portfolio analyst with Action Alerts PLUS, weighs in on the risks that investors should watch out for.

"So I think the biggest risk right now is obviously how will trade impact the economy, then how does the Fed respond? So for today, this morning we got a contractionary number in Chicago PMI and that's really just kind of the localized region, but it kind of follows a string of some weaker PMI numbers that we're seeing. So now the Fed has to balance, okay, what do we do in light of these weaker PMI numbers? Now the intake would be perhaps cut rates. Well at the same time, what if we get some type of positive development on trade now then that will raise expectations for global economic activity," said Marks.
