Spring 2019 Market Commentary: Is This the Next Gear?

Spring 2019 Market Commentary Explores What’s Next for Economies and Markets

During the last quarter of 2018, the S&P experienced its worst December since the Great Depression and the worst quarter since the Great Recession. While markets rebounded significantly in the first quarter of this year, the question remains: What is our next gear? In our spring commentary, “Is This the Next Gear?” TC Wealth Partners President and Chief Investment Officer, J. Reed Murphy, looks under the market’s hood to see if we shift up or down from here.

In this issue, Murphy considers some of the predictions made in the last commentary and tackles big questions the market will face in 2019, including:

  • What are the consequences of the Fed’s about-face on the number of interest rate hikes?
  • Is the inverted yield curve really going to lead to a recession?
  • Is the economic expansion as good as it’s hyped up to be?

In addition, we supply portfolio implications based on the market trends. As we shift into this new gear, we hope to help navigate whatever roads lie ahead.
