Wit & Wisdom – 10/14/2019

Good morning. We are seeing kind of a see-saw market this morning as indexes keep bouncing between positive and negative territory … which might be an indication that investors (and maybe both Wall Street and Washington) just don’t know what is going on with the trade situation.
