Market Watch
 
We saw the markets test some lows for 2022 towards the end of January. While we saw a slight rebound to close out the month, many of the market indexes closed out down in January between 5-9%. We saw a further bounce back in the first 10 days of February, but have since seen a lot more volatility and even pressures of retesting the January lows.

Interest rates and inflation continue to be a hot issue. While we saw the central banks hold interest rates at the end of January, they signaled that multiple rate hikes are not too far away, and many are speculating that the first hike could come as soon as March 2nd.

Lots of news and concern surrounding the potential Russian invasion of Ukraine and fears of war has had an impact on the markets. If the concerns surrounding this conflict continues or the situation escalates, we could see the markets break through and test new lows. This will likely continue to be a sensitive issue triggering short term volatility.

Time to gear up for Tax Season!

Taxes are a fact of life! Whether it’s due to earning an income, making a purchase, owning real estate, investing, running a business, or transferring your estate, life is full of tax implications.

While the Income Tax Act was created specifically to ensure that everyone pays their fair share it also affords all taxpayers the right to organize their financial affairs in such a way to minimize their taxes whenever and however possible within the legal confines of the Act.

And that is the primary objective of tax planning...

Seek the guidance of a financial professional with experience in income and investment planning strategies for minimizing personal income taxes.

The KLT Team are here to provide you that personal guidance.

Monthly Recipe:



Cowboy Chili
 

Ingredients: 
•  3/4 lb Ground beef, lean
•  2 cloves Garlic
•  1 tsp Oregano, dried
•  1 (15-ounce) can Pinto beans
•  1 (15-oz) can Tomatoes, stewed
•  1 Yellow onion, medium
•  1 cup Beef broth
•  1/8 tsp Cayenne pepper
•  2 tbsp Chili powder
•  1/2 tsp Salt
•  1 tsp Cumin, ground (if, desired)

Instructions: 
1. Cook the ground beef, garlic, and onion in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir for 10 minutes, or until beef is browned. Spoon out the liquid
2. Stir in the tomatoes, broth, chili powder, oregano, cayenne pepper, and cumin 
3. Reduce the heat to low and cover the saucepan. Let the chili simmer for an hour, stirring occasionally
4. Add in the beans and salt. Stir, and simmer for another 20 minutes. Serve in bowls. Enjoy!

The above is a basic recipe,
but you could try any of these tips:
 

• Add more Cayenne, if you like your chili spicier – or some jalapeno peppers - remember, you can always add, but you can’t take away!
• It doesn’t have to be ground beef.  You can use – ground turkey, chicken, Italian Sausage, or Chorizo
• To make it hardier you could add vegetables like – carrots, corn, mushrooms, etc.
• The recipe says pinto beans, but you could also use kidney, or black beans or a combination. Just make sure to rinse and drain them well first
• You could add beer as a flavour enhancer!
• You can make it thinner by adding more liquids or thicker by taking the lid off and letting the liquid naturally evaporate 
• Then Dress it up – Chili isn’t complete without sour cream, cheese, and chips!
