President Donald Trump to hold 3:30 p.m. ET news conference Saturday in Bedminster, N.J. after coronavirus talks flounder
President Donald Trump was set to hold a news conference on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., following a week of failed talks to hash out a deal to provide additional stimulus to out-of-work Americans. The planned event comes after the president held a surprise news conference at the golf club on Friday noting that he was contemplating signing a raft of executive orders that would place a moratorium on evictions, expand some unemployment benefits, defer student loan payments and defer payroll taxes for the rest of 2020. Those executive orders, however, fall short of what Congress can enact to help millions who have been economically hurt by business closures due to the novel strain of coronavirus from which COVID-19 is derived.On Friday, Democratic congressional leaders and Trump administration negotiators emerged from last-ditch coronavirus aid bargaining meetings empty-handed. Disagreement centered on the enhanced federal jobless benefits, $600 weekly add-on payments to the unemployed that lapsed in July, and how much to give to states. It's unclear what Trump's executive orders, should he decide to take that tacked, would do to negotiations between parties going forward. Friday served as a self-imposed deadline for a deal to be achieved before Congress goes into a summer recess. If lawmakers do not return to Washington later in August, the next likely window for negotiations is either September, when they will be focused on passing a temporary spending bill to keep the government open past Sept. 30, or after the Nov. 3 election. Investors have been keenly watching negotiations, with U.S. benchmarks trading as if a deal of some kind will be struck. The Dow Jones Industrial Average ended Friday trade with weekly gain of 3.8%, the S&P 500 index booked a weekly gain of 2.5%, while the technology-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index also notched a roughly 2.5% gain for the five-session period.

Drawing Down Retirement Savings in a Pandemic
As the coronavirus shut down the economy last spring, many consumers had their budgets cut by default. Trips and shows were canceled, nonessential medical procedures were postponed and restaurants closed.

SEE MORE 24 Dividend Cuts and Suspensions Chalked Up to the Coronavirus For retirees living on portfolios—or those forced into retirement unexpectedly due to the virus—the forced spending slowdown may have helped cushion the financial blow as they watched their investment account values plummet. Then, stocks lurched ahead and have since been volatile, leaving many retirees to wonder if they should adjust their game plan for retirement income as the economy opens up.

"The first quarter of this year represented the very definition of sequence risk," notes Patrick Nolan, a BlackRock portfolio strategist. "Early in retirement, it's the most challenging situation for a retiree who has begun to take cash flow from retirement accounts. You're selling assets, locking in losses and impairing the future value of the portfolio." 

To be sure, drawing down the right percentage amount from a portfolio each year is complex business. There are tax implications, so drawing from the right accounts at the right time matters. But knowing how much a retiree can spend each year without running out of savings in old age is even more important.

Plenty of tax and financial pros like to argue over the most tax-efficient ways of drawing down a portfolio once retirement has begun. Far fewer enjoy talking frankly about overall spending levels. Who wants to wade into the weeds of telling couples that trip to the Galapagos is off the table?

But let's go there, because the economic fallout from the pandemic is challenging old assumpt
