It’s been a bumper year for global stocks as MSCI’s broadest index, the All Countries World Index, has rallied ~19% YTD, while Emerging Markets are up more than 25%. Coming into 2018, the ingredients are there for a “rip-snorting” run, says Chad Slater from Morphic Asset Management. 

Ingredients for a market rally:

  • Rate hikes should be limited, with the Fed’s possible December hike looming
  • Global growth is solid
  • PMIs (purchasing managers’ indices) are at 14-year highs
  • Company earnings are also looking good.
