Progress in negotiations between the US, Mexico, and Canada is helping to mitigate the risk that the trade skirmishes turn into a recession-inducing global trade war.

August 2018 Economic Outlook

Global growth should sustain its current level into 2019, as positive momentum in the US compensates for slowdowns in other regions. Escalation of trade tensions would have an obvious negative impact, but the magnitude remains highly uncertain.

The recovery from the early February equity market correction was apparently a bit abrupt as the lows have been retested over the last few weeks.  US equity markets lost over 2% Monday and actually traded below the February 8th correction low before recapturing half of Monday’s loss at today’s close.  We believe this continues to be a corrective phase in an admittedly aging bull market, but the recent market action reminds us that it will be a bumpy ride as the market attempts to claw its way back.

Global GDP growth remains robust, although business and consumer surveys, as well as harder data, are showing signs of a slight slowdown in the rate of growth. The disappointing business and consumer spending reported early this year is not consistent with the still-ebullient consumer and business surveys. As the benefits of tax reform become more tangible, we expect business spending to regain the momentum evident in the second half of 2017.
