Weekly Commentary 8/10/15

The Global Markets were off to a head start on Monday morning. Over the weekend, rumors materialized that Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway was making a large acquisition of $32.4 billion in cash for Precision Castparts (PCP). With earnings news settling down, we can expect M&A deals to continue to stay on track to beat last year's $4.28T deal size. 
Auto sales in July increased 6.2% year over year, indicating a stronger than expected sign in consumer confidence. Even with jobs growth slowing down, the U.S. economy seems to be taking as a good sign as labor markets approach full employment. The most important figures releasing this week will be retail sales data for July. As consumer confidence strengthens we should expect an uptick in GDP for the latter half of the year.
The rest of August should be a slow period as investors and politicians take time off. In the meanwhile, we will focus our efforts on the Chinese economy and update you with more info.
