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

It was great to have everyone around for a few days and a really fun time was had by all at the wedding. We have some down time, a brunch with friends, and an overnight at other friends place at Sauble beach, on the agenda for the long weekend. It should be a good week.


This Past Week and more; Most equity markets globally were positive last week. With Facebook throwing an unexpected wrench in things, the SP500 and DOW were still up 0.6% and 1.6% respectively, but the tech heavy NASDAQ was down -1.1%. At home, the TSX was down slightly at -0.3%.

Trump’s threatened Federal government shutdown if his proposals on immigration reform are not backed, has the markets slightly tentative this morning.

We continue to see positive US growth and economic numbers.


The Weekend/Weather; Mike’s monster jam with special guests and musicians begins at 4 pm on Sunday (and continues every 2nd Sunday) at the KW Boathouse.


The landscape is greener after some much needed rain the past week or so. Similar weather is supposed to continue this week. For the weekend at this point though, Saturday looks to be the best day with mostly sunny weather. Sunday and Monday have the possibility of thunderstorms.

Enjoy a Great Week and Long Weekend!!
