Chris Versace’s PowerTalk: Keith Bliss from Cuttone & Company

Welcome to PowerTalk, where we talk with CEOs, COOs and other key business people at public and private companies as well as other subject matter experts.

This week’s PowerTalk interview is with Keith Bliss, senior vice president at Cuttone and Company, one of the largest floor brokers on the NYSE. Keith is an old friend of mine, and he shares what he sees from the trading floor these days. He starts the conversation off by saying 2013 is shaping up to deliver a lot more of the same for investors as 2012 – mixed economic signals, political battles and all.

We also cover why the U.S. equity markets are still the best place to put your money, how to put ETFs to work for you, the risks investors face in 2013, the looming debt ceiling crisis and how you could be affected if Washington doesn’t get a deal in place, taxes, unemployment and more!

Finally, we take a look at the potential threats that Keith believes could derail the markets and the economy in 2013, including energy costs, politics and currency wars.
