Market outlook:

The U.S. and global stock markets continue to hit new highs but are vulnerable to a short-term pullback. Excellent profit growth plus economic stimulus measures are fuelling the fire. The U.S. economic recovery is continuing (as housing and auto sales continue to be strong and jobs slowly starting to be created, consumer confidence is boosted) and a soft landing in China is adding to global growth. The commodity sector is under pressure as it continues to face mixed data as the market struggles with slowing Chinese growth.
