Despite some upside strength on Friday, the major stock indices slumped badly on week as a whole, as swings between risk-off and risk-on sentiment had investors switching between stocks and bonds through the week. Concerns over whether another rate hike by the U.S. Federal Reserve Board would push the U.S. into a recession combined with uncertainties about a U.S./China trade war to unsettle markets, even as strong results from three big U.S. banks kicked off what is expected by many analysts to be a positive third-quarter earnings season. The S&P 500 Composite Index closed with a weekly loss for the third consecutive week, falling 4%, while the Nasdaq Composite Index lost 3.7% on week, despite posting its best single-day advance since late March. Toronto’s S&P/TSX Composite Index fell 3.3% on the week, as financials sold off in response to rising U.S. bond yields and energy stocks plunged as WTI crude oil dropped 3.8% on the week and the spread between Western Canada Select and WTI crude prices widened.

In fact, it’s become so busy that I’ve been thinking about quitting my day job and devoting all my time to my business. But it’s a bit scary to make that leap.
