Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist
Leaders in Washington reached an agreement to raise the debt ceiling, averting a self-inflicted financial disaster. However, with the debt ceiling nonsense out of the way, investors were free to focus on the U.S. economic recovery and Europe’s debt crisis – and the outlook doesn’t look so hot. The U.S. economy has slowed and the downside risks to the growth outlook have increased. Although it still appears that the U.S. is likely to avoid a recession, the odds have increased. The European debt crisis appears to be enveloping Spain and Italy, which will be much bigger problems for the big banks in Europe. Stocks fell broadly around the world.

The dollar was mixed following efforts by the Swiss and the Japanese to weaken their currencies. «Read the rest of this article»
