Weekly Economic Update
Something I have done before is keep you updated on economic developments and thoughts in the industry in an email newsletter format. Going forward I am going to start posting here, and include links via a newsletter to these and others. This way, you can come to the website and read any time, without having to search for email, and you can easily pass this on to anyone whom you believe would find this of value.
So… Whats going on?
This week we will discuss information from Fidelity’s Capital Markets group. (tip: click on the individual graphics to view them full size)
The Big Picture
Are we looking at a looming economic slowdown? Don’t be surprised if the European recession spills over.
There are 4 things you may be concerned about.
- Equity market volatility
- Potentially rising inflation & interest rates
- Government debt and the fiscal cliff
- Finding yield (interest) in a low rate environment
