WEEKLY MARKET REVIEW – 4/9/2018

Equity markets declined last week as the trade dispute between China and the U.S. flared.  Ultimately, it amounted to headline grabbing proposals and tweets, not policies, very similar to the lead up to NAFTA negotiations.  Treasury bond yields climbed last week and commodities softened. Market Anecdotes There are many considerations [...]

WEEKLY MARKET REVIEW – 4/2/2018

Following one of the worst weeks in two years, equity markets rebounded approximately 2% in this holiday shortened week as falling interest rates enabled REITs, telco, utilities, and consumer staples to lead the way.  The yield curve flattened with long rates (-0.9%) falling significantly more than short rates (-0.1%). Market [...]

WEEKLY MARKET REVIEW – 3/26/18

The S&P 500 fell over 5% last week for the second time this year as markets grew anxious about U.S. maneuverings toward trade protectionism, potential technology sector regulation stemming from Facebook data improprieties, and a downbeat tone of recent Eurozone economic data.  Global proxies of technology, financials, and healthcare bore [...]

WEEKLY MARKET REVIEW – 2/26/2018

A holiday shortened week with a relatively light economic and corporate earnings calendar left equity and commodity markets slightly higher while interest rates were largely unchanged.  Equity market volatility (VIX) continued to settle from the 37.3 peak on February 5 to 16.5 by the end of the week. Technology stocks [...]

WEEKLY MARKET REVIEW – 2/19/2018

Positive economic data and continued strong earnings sent the S&P 500 to its best week since 2013 after getting slammed into correction territory in a remarkably short time period since late January.  Three of the four main indices (S&P 500, DJIA, NASDAQ, Russell 2000) are back above their 50 day [...]
