6/30/18 – Market Review & Outlook

At the year’s halfway point, market behavior has clearly changed from the easy, care-free gains of 2017. After a near-uninterrupted climb higher last year – one in which the S&P 500 did not experience a 3% decline during the entire year – financial market volatility increased substantially. Markets suffered their first 10% decline in two years in the first quarter, while the second quarter offered little more than choppy up-and-down trading.

6/30/16 – Market Review & Outlook

euros

For the first 84 days of the second quarter, global financial markets were relatively well behaved – a respite from the choppy environment that began last May. Unfortunately, the schizophrenic equity markets we endured last August and in January reappeared in the final week of the quarter.
