The Great Bull Market Run Of 2019 And 2020 May Only Be Starting

Stocks had a solid showing this week, with the S&P 500 finishing the week higher by roughly 1%. For September the index has risen by over 3%. However, the real star this past week was the Russell 2000, which is now up over 5.5% for the month.

Global Growth Trade

As I have been talking about all week in the member area, the sector rotation that has been taking place tells a tale of improving global growth. The top 5 sectors are all part of a global growth trade, with the semis, energy, industrials, and materials, four of the top five. Financials come in at number 2 rising by nearly 6% so far this month. Partially that is because of the rising interest and widening spreads we have recently witnessed. But rising rates can also be interpreted as an expectation that the economy is stronger than previously perceived in August.

Commodity Strength

Copper
