Trick or Treat

posted 11/1/2011 in General

Market Commentary Highlights...
  • Investors were treated to powerful gains last week as European policymakers crafted a deal to avoid a 2008-like financial crisis and economic and profit reports in the United States reflected solid growth.
  • We believe last week's European rescue deal is more treat than trick, but the devil is in the details. Over the long-term, concerns remain about the tricky outlook for economic growth in Europe and the ability of some peripheral countries to meet budget targets.
  • While the stock market is likely to hang on to the powerful gains made in October, there are still a few of scares coming in November that may spook the markets and reintroduce some familiar volatility.
