The global markets largely stayed the course in August, but uncertainty in the eurozone remains a top concern for the financial markets. In the U.S., unemployment continues to hamper a stronger recovery, but growth appears to remain on track. In Europe, sovereign bond yields have improved, but the region still faces greater uncertainty than ever before.
