We're Followed By All of the Finest Treasury Secretaries

Remember when interest rates spiked upwards? Well, the markets are still trying to find to stability. Kenny Polcari told us that we have to test the lows of October again and then the markets can begin to build again. Rates are rising, and the markets have to decide what the proper valuation is in the new environment. Kenny gives us a quick primer on the fragmentation of the markets, and how that exaggerates the volatility. 

Michael welcomes Matt Leffingwell to talk about DC post-midterms. It's been a while since we've heard from Matt, and he walks us through the chatter on the Hill. The tech industry is watching for privacy legislation, the financials are watching for new regulation, and everyone is looking at infrastructure. Leffingwell says we will see gridlock across most areas, but drug pricing may be a point of agreement.

When the markets are confused, Mona Mahajan, US Investment Strategist from Allianz GI, has a voice that makes sense. Michael welcomes Mona on to peel back the layers. The US economy is strong, but will the momentum continue in the face of trade difficulties, rising rates, and slower global growth? Mona makes the case that we aren't heading into a recession, so the markets will likely find the technical bottom and move forward.
