Weekly Market Notes - January 6, 2020

Summary

The equity markets ended 2019 with the best gains in six years followed by new record highs recorded in the first week of the new year.

Given the market’s nearly straight up move since the third quarter of last year, rising tensions with Iran could be the catalyst for a short-term pullback.

We expect to see positive returns in both stocks and bonds in 2020 backed by solid economic fundamentals including an accommodative Federal Reserve, several very positive trade agreements, a resilient labor market and a strong consumer.
