Money Monday: Keeping an eye on the 2013 stock market

Posted: Updated:

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -- The stock market has been on fire this month. At its current pace, it would rise more than 55 percent this year. But does this kind of a rally make you nervous?

Jonathan Citrin, founder and CEO of the Citrin Group in Birmingham, has some suggestions on what to watch for during 2013 that could severely impact the markets.

What to watch for, what to know:

March Madness
-Due to automatic spending cuts, expiration of government budgets and the debt ceiling

More politics, less economics
-Our elected leaders are professional "career" politicians, with little or no knowledge of actual economics

Debt isn't bad
-If we reframe the conversation, one can realize that debt is not always bad. The solution to our economic mess rests here within
