September 3, 2017 The Week Ahead

The markets finished off the summer in impression fashion, posting gains across the board. With earnings subsiding attention will focus on the economic impact of Hurricane Harvey, the debt ceiling, and potential conflict between North Korea. Thus far, neither one of these issues has been able to stop the stock market’s rise.

Judging by the VIX the market fears very little these days. The “fear index” closed at 10.13 on Friday.
