Thoughts on the Economy

An updated view of the Russell Investments Economic Indicators Dashboard:

Economic Indicators Dashboard May 2013

This dashboard view of the economy, offered by Russell Investments, displays a compilation of economic data. Each data point is presented relative to its typical range. As our economy continues on its recovery path, we see many indicators at levels consistent with a growing economy. Low inflation and elevated mortgage delinquencies continue to be outlying statistics.

The path to economic normalcy and decreased Federal Reserve stimulus should be welcomed by long-term investors, however the possibility of rising interest rates and reduced monetary stimulus has caused short-term (and hopefully temporary) disruption in the equity and bond markets.
