WEEKLY MARKET OUTLOOK WEBINAR

PHILLIP SUMMARY

Rising U.S.-Iran tensions quickly went from an incendiary issue to a nonissue for global markets this past week. Both sides seemed eager to step back from further violent escalation, despite plenty of opportunity to do so.

The tensions peaked on Tuesday night after Iran sent a barrage of missiles at two bases housing U.S. forces in Iraq. S&P 500 index futures dropped as much as 1.6% within minutes. But as details of the attack emerged and it became clear that there had been no casualties, futures rebounded just as fast. They opened up slightly on Wednesday.
