US Equity Markets continue to slowly march forward, fueled by continued consumer spending and strong company earnings. The S&P 500 and Dow have both hit record intraday highs at periodic points over the past few weeks. Interest Rates have remained low with 10-year US Treasury yield sitting at 1.36% as of August 11th,, which is lower than the 2021 high of 1.74% in March. This has helped consumer spending throughout the year, but negatively impacted bond prices during periods of rising rates.
Financial, Real Estate, Energy, and Communication sectors have shown increased growth and momentum this year benefiting from the current economic conditions. Real Estate, Financial, Material, and Industrial sectors show signs of continued upward momentum and growth potential.
