Patrick Stone on what's next in the market for 2016

A year's worth of predictions from the WFG CEO

“The U.S. economy will continue to expand in 2016, principally because of growing consumer confidence resulting in increased consumption. Overall GDP (gross domestic product) numbers will remain subdued, probably in the 2.5 percent range, but that reflects a negative from imports exceeding exports…which has been the case for a while, but something that is exacerbated by the strong dollar,” said the WFG president and CEO.
