- Volatility spiked to its highest level in over 2 years.
- Global equities are in negative territory this year, led by Europe’s 10% decline.

- Mortgage rates are down 100 basis points over the past year
- Jobless claims are at their lowest levels in 15 years
- Housing prices nationally are up 7% in the past year
- Gasoline prices are off 20% this year
