The equity market has been on a steady advance since after the election last year. And actually this market recovery has been in place since the end of the financial crisis in 2009. As noted in our blog article on Saturday, a market correction of 10+% has not occurred for more than 500+ trading days. A number of the articles contained in this week's magazine highlight the strength of the equity market as well as highlight the potential rotation out of bonds into equities that is taking place. Slowly rising market interest rates are serving as one tailwind that may be pushing equity prices higher.
