A disciplined approach to market uncertainty

Volatility is inevitable, and its effects can be broadly felt by investors. Monetary or fiscal policy changes, economic uncertainty and geopolitical issues can create a lack of confidence in markets that impact investor behavior and psychology, leading to sentiment-driven reactions.

We’ve seen bouts of volatility with increased media coverage in real-time, which can inadvertently create a lot of noise for investors. It’s little wonder then that the bullish run in stocks continues to enthrall investors while spooking them at the very same time.

While not unprecedented, the aggressive rally in both of the S&P 500 Index and the 10-year U.S. Treasury is unusual and highlights a growing divide about the state of the global economy, whereby equity investors seem far less worried about an imminent recession than do their bond counterparts. 

Will markets continue their upward trajectory or will geopolitical issues and the ensuing volatility put an end to this historical bull market run?
