Weekly Market Outlook July 8, 2018

“Bull markets go to people’s heads. If you’re a duck on a pond, and it’s rising due to a downpour, you start going up in the world. But you think it’s you, not the pond.” – Charlie Munger

Pfäffikon SZ, Switzerland – The markets were pretty resilient the past week. Traders now also see that a possible trade war between the US and China will be resolved behind the scenes. The press is screaming bloody murder, but there is no question of an actual trade war yet. Additionally, economic figures in the US show a positive picture. In spite of the recent pullback, we think that the markets may increase spectacularly in the second half of 2018.

The stock markets will be dominated by international meetings and economic figures next week, while in the US the numerical season will start.
