Market Moment

Glen Eagle®: America’s Women-Owned Trading Desk®  


  • The Magnificent Seven stocks (Nvidia, Apple, Alphabet, Microsoft, Amazon, Meta, and Tesla) have swelled to represent about 30% of the S&P 500's market value. Together they now represent more market value than the UK, China, France, and Japan stock markets combined. 1
  • Mortgage rates fell below 7% for the first time since August, as the U.S. economy is showing signs of cooling off. The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage fell for the seventh week in a row and averaged 6.95% as of Dec. 14. 2
  • In a recent survey, 45% of investors said the 2024 Presidential Election will have a bigger impact on their retirement plans than the stock market’s returns. Additionally, 32% believe the U.S. economy could enter a recession within a year if their preferred political party does not win. 3
  • The U.S. unemployment rate has remained below 4% for a record 22 consecutive months, marking the longest stretch since the late-1960s. Notably, the unemployment rate did not fall below 4% during the entire 1970s, 80s, or 90s. 4
