Market Reflections for Third Quarter 2017

The third quarter of 2017 saw equity and fixed-income markets continue their upward momentum, both here in the U.S. and abroad. It has been a banner year thus far for risk assets, by most measures. In September, the Federal Reserve announced a much-anticipated plan to begin the unwinding of its balance sheet (starting in October) and stood pat on interest rates. This news was digested with little market agitation. Overall, the third quarter was relatively smooth in terms of volatility, despite devastating hurricanes and escalating political tensions around North Korea.
