April was another strong month as the market continued its recovery from the lows of December. This continues to been driven by the topics we have covered in the previous market reviews of the year. This rise feels very similar to 2017 when the US equity markets faced very little opposition and continued to run higher and higher without a real pause or correction. While issues did present themselves, nothing materialized and then we had a bit of a move upwards to new highs. It is also worthy to point out the US Federal Reserve raised rates three times that year.
