The Dow fell 0.4% last week and was up 0.7% in 2015, while the S&P 500 also fell 0.4% last week and was up 2.1% for the year. Credit Suisse’s strategy team said on Monday:

Global growth is improving after a slow start to the year. We expect broad-based strength in the second half driven by a rebounding US, policy stimulus across Asia, and an ongoing European upswing, assuming no shock from Greece. … We expect the Fed to start tightening in September. Solid growth and tightening labor markets should prevent further loosening this year from the ECB and BoJ.

Imagine a day when Greece and Puerto Rico both are effectively resounding the default risks, and the S&P 500 is down 21 points and the Dow is indicated down 180 points. That was the way things were on Monday.
