David Kotok: Markets Will Rally by Halloween

Updated on

From stocks to commodities to emerging-market currencies, traders got a measure of solace at the end of the most volatile quarter for financial markets since 2011.

U.S. stocks jumped the most in three weeks, while European equities climbed with those in emerging markets as benchmark indexes tracking the shares pared their worst quarter in four years.

Treasuries notched up their best quarter of 2015, while gold extended losses.
