Market Volatility Could Hit Women And Minorities The Hardest

October 4, 2019

The stock market continues to rage amid talks of the trade war with China. Market volatility impacts all who invest in the equities markets, but who has the most at stake? When the markets fluctuate, it may be women and minorities who feel the brunt of the storm.
