Stocks rally on Fed comments; Eurozone banks face challenges

In this week’s video update:

  • What do advisors and institutional investors need to know about this week’s U.S. stocks rally based on the U.S. Federal Reserve’s (the Fed) Wednesday comments?
  • What are our strategists’ views on strengthening oil prices and the implications for portfolios this year?
  • It was a good week for emerging market equities. What drove the rally, and does that change the outlook for investors with exposure to Asia and Europe?

Chief Investment Strategist Erik Ristuben joins host Mark Soupiset on this week’s Market Week in Review webcast.

With the Dow Jones Industrial Average back in positive territory for 2016 as of Friday morning this week, Ristuben explains that the Fed’s remarks indicate an intention to raise rates only two more times this year, which could have important implications for U.S. and global equities going forward.

Ristuben also gives his expert opinion on rising oil prices and what the strong week in emerging market equities could mean for investors’ portfolios.
