The world economic situation seems to be in a period of upheaval with the Ebola crisis landing for the first time on American soil, this could have a greater strain on the economic growth as the fear of the American people are concerned about air travel, this could be one reason oil has been in a tumble, not to mention the crisis with ISIS and the unrest in Hong Kong. The problems in with the European bank is an ongoing struggle as they seek outside assets in order to stabilize their own economy, in the midst of this uncertainty the World Bank has lowered the economic growth estimates for 2014 through 2016. The big question is what do all these political issues have on the equity markets going forward. We think that the markets are still showing signs of growth due to the Federal Reserve supporting QE and we have not broken the long term demand on the markets, until that demand is broken we are still in an uptrend, so all pull backs are met with the institutions still buying. Our opinion there is still room to the upside but it has become a stock pickers market, this is why stock market education is key to take advantage of these opportunities in the securities markets.
