LATEST UPDATES

  • Hopes for a Smooth Road Back to Normal (11/18/2020)

    In the two short weeks since election night, financial markets have rallied on the belief that the road back to normal will be both smooth and relatively fast. We are heartened by the news driving those gains, but as always, we continue to be on the lookout for bumps that might slow or derail the recovery.
  • Without a Concession, Uncertainties Will Linger (11/6/2020)

    The market's immediate reaction in the first two days following the election on November 3 was exceedingly positive, with traders pushing the S&P 500 to within shooting distance of its all-time high. But, much like the rest of the year 2020, a number of uncertainties are still looming on the horizon.
  • The Road Ahead (10/28/2020)

    With the nation's eyes so firmly locked on the November 3, 2020 election, we've cast our gaze differently and have been considering what happens in the days and weeks that follow that crucial vote — no matter the electoral outcome.
  • Never a Dull Moment (10/8/2020)

    Heading into the November election, with COVID-19 still in circulation, each day seems to bring a new batch of eye-catching (and often market-moving) headlines. Some are cause for hope, others are cause for concern.
  • A Market Reality Check? (9/10/2020)

    Heightened volatility returned to the major indexes in recent days, sending them sharply lower as many of the high-flying tech companies that had fueled the market’s advance over the summer sold off, only to stage a partial rebound on Wednesday.
  • Jobs, Executive Orders, and the Markets (8/11/2020)

    The latest report on the employment front brought a dose of positive news about the economy’s ability to claw its way out of the hole caused by the COVID-19-inspired shutdowns. But while the job increases are certainly positive, the markets continue to keep their eyes trained on federal stimulus efforts.
  • ICMA-RC Supports Additional Congressional Relief for Local and State Governments (7/22/2020)

    Congress reconvened on July 20, 2020. It is expected that consideration will be given to a fourth legislative package to address the impacts of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
  • COVID-19 & Market Volatility: Can Greater Asset Diversification in Defined-Contribution Plans Lead to Better Outcomes? (5/7/2020)
