Monday’s Factors and Events

It’s the final week of the second quarter and markets look to close out the past three months with solid gains.

 The Dow Jones Industrial Average is on track to end more than 3% higher for the quarter, adding to the 4.5% growth seen in the first quarter. Likewise, the S&P 500 is on track to end with gains of roughly 3%, slowing from the 5.5% increase seen in the first three months of the year.
 Markets have entered a quieter period in recent weeks as the earnings season came to a close and the Trump agenda appeared to stall. Volatility has tumbled nearly 20% since the beginning of April.
Progress on healthcare in the coming week could shake markets out of their malaise. Roadblocks in the Obamacare repeal-and-replace process have raised doubts over when tax reform could come to pass. House Speaker Paul Ryan insisted on Tuesday, June 20, that tax reform would come by year’s end.
