April 26, 2018 - Insights into the equity, fixed-income, currency and commodity markets from RBC Wealth Management.

We are off this weekend to help Landon get moved from Kingston to Ottawa. He appears to be quite happy in his new role and we are thankful he has a job he enjoys. Then we will be flying out to meet the Calgary contingent in Portland Oregon. I understand hiking and Powell’s Books – which claims to be the world’s largest independent new and used book store, are among the items on the agenda. We are all just looking forward to seeing each other and spending time together.


Tax Packages; The March 29 tax package mailings will conclude this year’s tax reporting. However, clients should be aware that it is possible for issuers to amend previously reported information resulting in amended tax packages.


This Past Week; It has been a volatile week with investor concern over the 10-year US treasury yield eclipsing 3% for the first time in more than 4 years earlier in the week. Markets had a strong comeback yesterday though. The TSX is solidly positive and US markets are mixed. Today looks mixed to start so we will see how it finishes off the week. I know it can be hard to wait it out but, our analysts still believe we are in global growth mode and that we give equities the benefit of the doubt.

The Weekend/Weather; What looks to unfortunately be a colder weekend will be followed by a little warmer Monday and then a couple of days that we might actually see temperatures hit the 70’s (that’s 20 for the Celsius crowd).

I hope you get the chance to enjoy it!
