Brad McMillan, Commonwealth’s CIO, recaps the economic news for February. Last month, there was a 10-percent market drawdown in the U.S., something we haven’t seen for almost two years. Although many were worried that this was the “big one,” the markets recovered more than half of their losses by month-end, and the economic fundamentals remain sound. Job growth is strong, business confidence is high, and consumer confidence is at the highest level since 2000. Will this good news continue into March? Stay tuned to find out. Follow Brad at
