Say hello to 'quick takes,' October 6, 2021. The goal of 'quick takes' is to offer an overview of the key topics and events driving today's financial markets. These are observations from conversations and insights with financial professionals around the world.
Given world events in front of us today (see list below), I expect global financial markets to display more price movements (aka volatility) both up and down in the coming weeks and months. We’ve already seen this with a modest -5% decline in the S&P 500 index.
