MARKET UPDATE | FOURTH QUARTER 2018

Adam Recker, CFA, CFP® & Michael Furla, CFA

While 2017 felt like a golden year with positive returns and historically low volatility, we experienced a resurgence of stock market volatility in 2018. Whether it be from the Fed hiking interest rates, China trade war and tariff fears, Brexit challenges or other factors, investor uncertainty elevated, which negatively impacted stock markets. Despite all this, we still saw indicators that the US economy was on positive footing in 2018, such as historically low unemployment and increased GDP levels.
