CURRENT MARKET HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Global equity markets turned in one of their worst weeks of the year, falling more than 3% in many regions amid growing concerns over rising U.S. interest rates and slowing global growth abroad.
  • Inflation data out of the U.S. showed moderating inflationary pressures, helping to drive a retreat in U.S. Treasury yields mid-week. Elsewhere, small business optimism and consumer confidence in the U.S. edged a little lower but continued to remain near multi-year highs.
  • Earnings season began on Friday with some large banks topping expectations. This provided a boost to sentiment as the week ended.
  • We believe the latest market turmoil does not mark the end of the current bull market and that stocks have a good chance to finish the year at higher levels. Click here for more detail on our latest outlook.
