Weaker economic data: What’s ahead for U.S., Europe and China?

In this week’s video update:

  • Was this week’s big sell-off in emerging markets expected?
  • With April’s U.S. non-farm payroll report coming in less than consensus, does this alter the likelihood of a June interest rate hike by the Fed? And how does this align with Russell Investments’ U.S. economic outlook?
  • Europe and China’s markets were slowed by marginally weaker data this week – what’s the outlook for investors?

Chief Investment Strategist Erik Ristuben joins host Mark Soupiset on this week’s Market Week in Review webcast to discuss the weaker than expected April U.S. jobs report, marginally weaker economic data from Europe and China, and what investors should know about the sell-off in emerging markets.

Ristuben also provides insight about what he expects to see the U.S. Federal Reserve do with interest rates in June.
