The Bottom Line

Equity markets around the world remain intermediate overbought and vulnerable to a correction. Cracks appeared in several places last week including the Technology sector early last week, European equity market in mid-week and the retail sector at the end of the week. The usual period of summer weakness from Mid-June to Mid-October has arrived. However, volatility measured by the VIX Index remains relatively muted. Political events in a wide variety of countries (most notably in the U.S.) could change that quickly. Be careful out there! A spike in volatility will be the most likely sign that the summer correction has started. Meanwhile, holding a robust position in cash in your investment portfolio makes sense.
