Reviewing the Guide to the Markets to Understand the Current Investment Environment
J.P. Morgan's Guide to the Markets for the third quarter of 2018 is now available for your review. Inside you'll find deeper insight into the current investment environment and what the investment team at JP Morgan is keeping an eye on right now.
On page 19 you'll see two charts (Real GDP & Components of GDP) that show how the economic expansion is continuing at a slow but steady pace. On page 25 you'll see a chart that displays how unemployment continues to fall, which JP Morgan believes should drive up wages. And on page 7 you'll see three charts that show how although earnings headwinds should be behind us, future growth may be muted.
This quarter's comprehensive 71-page guide includes 65-pages of in-depth analysis charts that illustrate:
- Economic Growth & the Composition of GDP
- Unemployment & Wages
- Corporate Profits
- Manufacturing Momentum
These charts can be interpreted by you and your wealth manager to better understand the existing investment environment and how it compares to previous investment environments. Additional charts illustrate what you need to know about:
- The Fed & Interest Rates
- Interest Rates & Inflation
- S&P 500 Valuation Measures
