Market Update: March 15, 2018

Today we are going to talk once again about what’s happening with interest rates. Recall from mid-December to mid-February, the 10 year Treasury rose from 2.35% all the way up to 2.95%. Now in the last month it’s down somewhat to around 2.85% while the market takes a little bit of a breather.

Market Update: February 8, 2018

As you’ve seen over the past month interest rates have gone up over 40bps and there has been a lot of volatility in the stock market as well. It might feel like there is no end to the rise in interest rates as they are now up almost 75bps since July.

Market Update: January 11, 2018

The Great Leap of Faith

In this week's Market Update, EVP of Capital Markets, Jason Obradovich talks about interest rates and inflation. Will rates move higher as we close out 2017? Watch the video and learn more about the current market and what to keep an eye on in the following weeks.

A Potential Game Changer

Don't look now but the 10yr yield is almost trading with a 1 handle. With the 10yr down 37bps on the year and now trading at 2.06%, 1.99% is just in sight. This is a psychological barrier that could spark a game changing attitude about growth and the long term prospects for rates.

The Inflation Ghost

Anyone who read an economics textbook from 1970 to 2000 most likely came across a chapter on inflation. Are we really in an environment where we need to fear inflation?

Hitting the Pause Button

For rates to drop a few things would need to happen, but the big two are inflation and jobs. See what's in store!

Time for Reflection

It is without a doubt that if you were an investor in March of 2009, you should have bought stocks when uncertainty around the economic future thanks to the Financial Crisis was at its peak. Today marks the 8yr anniversary of the” bottom”.
