Volatility has defined 2018’s stock market. Trade war fears, and an increasing belief the US is nearing the end of the economic cycle have both put a damper on investor sentiment.

Fortunately, JPMorgan has published its third-quarter presentation on the state of the markets and the economy.
Through almost 70 slides of charts and graphics, they provide insight into the state of equities and both the US and global economy.
Thanks to JPMorgan Asset Management for giving us permission to feature this presentation.
