Don’t forget to sign up to see Doug at the San Francisco Money Show! He’ll be giving several presentations on ETF investing and we highly recommend this great show, especially if you’ve never attended before.

A few things to note about the world markets right now:
- China has broken out
- U.S. markets seem to be stalling out, but other areas of the world are moving well
- Japan and Europe are also stalling
Overseas markets have seen a lot of action, particularly in the emerging markets, despite the flat-line in the more established markets, such as the U.S. and Europe. The bond market continues to be strong and interest rates seem to be staying quite low, which is good for bonds. We are seeing big profit growth in the industrial sectors of China, and easing access for Chinese investors and us to buy into the Chinese stock market. Banks over there are improving and we are seeing Wall Street’s negative sentiment toward China begin to turn around.
If you have questions about how to incorporate the emerging markets into your portfolio, or if you simply need a wealth management tune-up, call our offices at 800-391-1118 today.
