Low-trading volume and sluggish price movement have filled the markets this week - is there a pickup in sight?
Money Morning's Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald appeared on Fox Business' "Varney & Co." this morning (Thursday) and discussed what could give the markets a needed boost.
We all know that central bank movement from the United States or Europe can move stocks, but now the focus is more on politics than economic policy.
Keith said that's why investors should pay attention to what happens when U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney takes the stage at the Republican National Convention. If Romney delivers a "breakout speech," the markets could enjoy a "Romney Rally."
Keith warns that if U.S. President Obama takes a commanding lead in the polls the same may not be true.
Prepare for what's ahead in the markets with Keith's full analysis in the accompanying video.
