Dundee Economic Monitor
The global economic picture remains mixed. In North America, the US economy shows signs of slippage that are likely to last for three to six months thanks to the end of the payroll tax holiday, higher taxes on upper income earners and spending cuts. Nevertheless car sales are buoyant, housing has been reasonably strong, and the energy sector continues to expand.

Market Monitor- Monthy Market Snapshot
US equity markets continued to perform well since our last Market Monitor while the TSX has not. The equity market outlook remains constructive, but there are still likely to be a few bumps in the road; so far this year markets have shaken them off.

For the third year in a row, a winter promise of strengthening global economic activity has given way to a spring of weakening momentum. Around the world, lacklustre growth is also visible in a number of key metrics that include softening commodity prices, low and moderating inflation trends, declining sovereign bond yields, as well as increasing pressure on corporate earnings.
