WHC – The US economy and the world!

After prolonged there again a blog post, from now on this will be held regularly again. A brief summary of recent months: Interest rates in the United States was raised for the first time the end of 2015 a further increase we now expect in June or September, as the reason the solid US economy is called by the FED. The US economy is also very solid, GDP increases remained moderate, the labor market is stable, the unemployment rate low at around 5% and the real estate market is recovering rapidly. Quite different is the situation in Europe, interest rates are at 0%, the unemployment rate remains high with more than 10% and economic growth is in the low 1% range. In China, it’s double-digit economic growth over the last values were about 6%. Globally, the world has not yet fully recovered from the economic crisis but in the US it is about a bit rosier. Earlier this year, although there was some correction in the markets, also driven by the low price of oil, but also who has recovered somewhat, the failures of the oil companies have of course left their mark. Generally speaking, the US economy is on a solid foundation, but the concrete is not completely cured. As the presidential election in the fall will affect markets is still fraught with a question mark, but it is a possible favorite, priced due to the polls, even before the elections. Among the individual companies remains to be said that the quarterly results consistently again were in line with expectations or over it – also in companies the positve economic climate reflects.The markets close today after less than expected ADP employment figures performing slightly. Dow 17838.56 (+48.89), NASDAQ 4971.36 (+19.11), S & P500 2105.36 (+5.93)
