    After a disappointing first half of the year, the markets appear to be experiencing some resurgence. The S&P 500 Index, while still down for the year, has recouped nearly 40% of its losses from its low point in March. So, what’s behind this rally? In the latest Five Minutes with Scott Colbert, we delve into three factors we believe are driving this rebound.

With such wild market activity, one of the most frequent questions we hear is, “When will we hit bottom?” In the latest Five Minutes with Scott Colbert, we list three things we’d like to see that could signal an end to the market drawdown.

    In an effort to combat the worst inflation in 40 years, the Federal Reserve said it’s raising the federal funds rates by a half-point on May 4, and indicated more rate hikes could lie ahead. Do investors still need to worry about a recession? In our latest Five Minutes with Commerce Trust Chief Economist Scott Colbert, we examine into the Fed’s actions and look at several factors why we believe a severe downturn is not likely in the near term.

    Both equity and bond markets are showing declines for the year, as surging inflation and rising interest rates squeeze stock prices and impact portfolio returns. What reaction should investors expect from the Federal Reserve? In the latest edition of Five Minutes with Commerce Trust Chief Economist Scott Colbert, we examine what steps the Fed could take in attempting to find the elusive neutral rate, an interest rate level that neither spurs nor restricts economic growth.
