Do Greek debt talks signal turmoil ahead?

In this week’s market update:

  • Does Thursday’s walkout by International Monetary Fund (IMF) officials from talks with Greek leaders signal turmoil ahead for European markets?
  • Why a good retail sales number reinforces Russell’s expectation that September will see interest rate hikes
  • Why investors across parts of Asia are expecting stimulative monetary policy in the days ahead

On this week’s Market Week in Review video, Chief Investment Strategist Erik Ristuben discusses this week’s chapter in the Greek debt talks, giving his insights into what the IMF walkout could mean for European equity and fixed-income markets in the weeks ahead.

Mark Soupiset hosts this week’s market update, which also examines the good retail sales figure in the U.S. and its role alongside other economic indicators in predicting whether September will mean interest rate hikes. Ristuben also examines the pan-Asian expectation of stimulative monetary policies and the affect that sentiment had on some Asian equity markets this week.
