Bonds fell through a key support level, and with news of President Trump’s decision to bomb Syria and the Fed’s watchdog-like concern regarding inflation, the market has been vexingly mixed. Though BobMortgage recommended to carefully float last week, all of these variables could influence your financial health even more.
