2024 First Quarter Market Update & Looking Ahead

As the first quarter of the year came to an end on March 29th, the market began to take a breather. After a blistering 2023 where the S&P 500 surged 26%, the S&P 500 continued that run in the beginning of 2024 to end March up over 10%. Though the market had a strong start, some cracks were beginning to show in the rally and in the two weeks to start the second quarter, the S&P 500 has pulled back to mid-single digits. To look at what’s driving these market movements and determine what the rest of the year might look like it’s important to review the current economic conditions.
