Debt Ceiling and Market Volatility

The debt ceiling refers to the statutory limit set by a government on the amount of debt it can issue. When the debt approaches or reaches this limit, the government must take measures to raise or suspend the ceiling to continue borrowing funds. Failure to address the debt ceiling in a timely manner can have significant implications for the financial markets, potentially leading to increased market volatility and instability. 

In this episode, John and Bryan will explore how the debt ceiling can affect the market and the associated volatility it brings. So you can prepare and focus on your long-term income and retirement goals, the right way.
