Market Commentary - Cumberland Advisors - Week in Review with Matt McAleer

Yesterday, May 3rd, was World Press Freedom Day. We took a moment to stop and reflect on the role of a free press and how it affects our day-to-day lives. The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) states: “Please join us as we pause to recognize the courage and commitment of all those reporting, whether local or global, as press freedom is increasingly threatened around the globe.” You can learn more about CPJ here:

Cumberland Advisors recently invited Gretchen Morgenson to our conference, “Financial Markets and the Economy – Financial Literacy Day III,” and we encourage you to watch her keynote address, titled “Why Financial Literacy Depends on Press Freedom,” at the link further down in this update. She has some excellent takeaways and anecdotes underscoring how important the press is for an accurate window on what’s happening behind markets and the world of finance.

Her video along with others is on our YouTube channel, updated weekly with Matt’s videos and other content that we produce and feel will be of value to you. Link:

Thank you for joining us and have a great Kentucky Derby weekend.
