The Early Tick: Markets

“We’ve gone through a very challenging period this summer, which is seasonally a slow period, and we’re entering into a period that will be pretty good when it comes to retail sales and industrial production," Parrish told CNBC.

And I think we break out from here and finish the year on a positive note,” he said.

Overall, Parrish expects the second quarter to be the “low mark” for GDP and sees it rising in the third and fourth quarters.
