Global Market Square

By on June 30, 2021

The U.S. and European stock markets ended with asymmetrical results, with Wall Street mostly up and the Eurozone mostly down.

The inflows we see in the U.S. stock markets are at $189 billion, the fastest growth rate since 2015. The rise has taken the markets to near all-time highs, and all is happening amid inflation fears and interest rates concerns. Stock rotation will continue as investors dig deeper into value stock opportunities
