At the midyear point of 2016, LPL Research proposes a vote of confidence: in the economy, the market, and most importantly, in our ability as investors to remain focused on our long-term goals. This is not always easy. We may be entering the eighth year of this economic recovery and bull market, but that doesn’t mean the memories of the Great Recession have faded away; and the volatility we’ve seen this year revives those memories and takes an emotional toll. As we cast our ballots, our vote is that the current economic recovery and bull market may continue through 2016 and beyond. With the LPL Research Midyear Outlook 2016: A Vote of Confidence, you will be armed with the investment insights and market guidance for what may lie ahead for the rest of this year.
