LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A Lafayette financial expert said we won't truly know the financial impact of the shutdown for months.
Financial Enhancement Group managing partner Joe Clark said the news of the shutdown ending caused the market to jump.
However he says we won't know the shutdown's impact until all factors have been looked at, which could take 6 months.
Clark said the market overall has remained stagnant, which is good for those investing.
"We're really back to where we were when this first started," Clark said. "The markets kind of shrugged it off, almost like no big deal nothing was happening. That creates a lot of concerns for professional money managers. But people looking at their 401Ks, the ones that were able to keep working, got away with it okay."
Clark says retail is going to be an area that sees a big hit because of furloughed customs agents.
Work is about to start in Evansville on a long-planned expansion of what is regarded as Indiana's oldest public library.
