Short-term outlooks within US and global economies continue to adjust downward, as US Treasury yields touched their lowest levels in over 65 years. International Monetary Fund downgraded estimates for US growth by 1.0% this year, down from 2.5%.

We expect continued volatility until economic data stabilizes and we see decisive policy action to deal with the Eurozone debt crisis.
