The Economy and Market from Here… at Hills July 2018


The Economy and Market from Here...at Hills.

The second quarter of 2018 has been eventful. Stock and bond markets digested a large amount of economic, corporate, and geopolitical news and emerged thus far on the positive side of the ledger. Stock markets flirted with 2018 lows in the first days of the quarter. Markets ended the quarter mixed as positive earnings reports and promising geopolitical developments were partially drowned out by escalating rhetoric surrounding trade—most notably NAFTA and trade deficits with China. The S&P 500 managed to record a small gain, up 3.43% for the second quarter. International markets fell slightly, losing 0.89% for the quarter. Year to date results tell a similar story. Domestic markets as measured by the S&P 500 gained 2.65% while international markets as measured by MSCI EAFE lost 2.40%.
