US markets had a very strong Q4 and year in 2018. The market appears to have evolved from one being stubbornly pushed higher by unrelenting Central Bank efforts to one that is self-sustaining and accelerating in its upward momentum.
Global equity markets continued its positive trend in the third quarter in 2018. U.S. market was strong which continued to be driven by the Information Technology sector. Both European and Asian markets were modestly higher in the quarter, but the gains were muted when measured in Canadian dollar terms. Canadian market lagged the global markets, with the S&P/TSX Composite Index returned slightly negative during the period.
