“The stock market is the story of cycles and of the human behavior that is responsible for the overreactions in both directions.” (Seth Klarman). The last two quarters are an example of how quickly market sentiment can change. The stock market corrected in the fourth quarter of 2018 and recovered most of the loss within the first three months of 2019.

The current bull market is already the longest in history but celebrated another milestone in the first quarter by turning ten years old. How long can the bull market continue? Our thoughts are set out in the attached Economic & Market Commentary, a quarterly outlook delivered to our Wealth Management clients.
