Equities Extend Their Advance

For the week ending 15 November 2019

As of noon on Friday, major US equity indices are on pace to close at record highs as fears of recession dissipate and hopes for a US-China trade agreement endure. The yield on the US-10 year Treasury note declined 10 basis points to 1.83% compared with last Friday while the price of a barrel of West Texas Intermediate Crude oil rose $0.90 to $57.15. Volatility, as measured by the Chicago Board Options Exchange Volatility Index (VIX), was little changed at 12.6.
