Weekly Market Update: Inverted Yield Curve, New Tariffs this Week

The U.S. yield curve inverted last Tuesday, raising worries of recession, while the trade war escalates this week as China and the U.S. exchange taris.

Despite increased concerns on the U.S. yield curve, global equities gained 2.0% last week with help from stable economic data and the absence of further escalation in the U.S.-China trade standoff. U.S. equities returned 2.7%, while non-U.S. developed markets rose 1.0% and emerging markets increased 1.1%. Through eight months of 2019, global equities are up 14.3%
