This monthly commentary gives a roundup of global markets and trends.

In this edition:

  • Robust nominal US GDP growth, led by near full employment and elevated profit margins, helped companies to beat analyst earnings expectations
  • We explore three key equity risk areas including the bond market, recession concerns and lack of market breadth
  • We discuss how if inflation drifts back to lower levels, it would allow investors to focus on economic and company fundamentals

The value of an investment may go down as well as up and you may get back less than you originally invested.
