Swiss National Bank Chairman Thomas Jordan on Friday defended the central bank's role in managing the demise of Credit Suisse in 2023, as he announced he was stepping down as SNB chief. Jordan said the collapse of the lender had no influence on his decision to leave his role as head of the central bank three years before his current mandate concludes.

US Equities (^GSPC, ^DJI, ^IXIC) have steadied following a record-setting rally in February. The gains across the market are largely attributed to the Magnificent Seven: Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), Alphabet (GOOG,GOOGL), NVIDIA (NVDA), Meta (META), Microsoft (MSFT), and Tesla (TSLA). As with any rally, many investors have begun to question the lifespan of these movements. Goldman Sachs Head of Asset Allocation Research Christian Mueller-Glissmann joins Yahoo Finance to discuss whether the concentration of gains in the Magnificent Seven presents a risk to the broader market. He also explains how the market is shifting toward reflation. Concerning the areas of the market that may perform well, Mueller-Glissmann affirms, "We've been leaning in our research a bit more towards consumer cyclicals because we see a lot of strength there, real income growth supporting consumers. There are selective industrials areas, like business services for example, has been an area we liked. It's still requiring a bit of a selective approach. The last thing I would say is smaller mid caps have been a favorite area to position for a bit more reflation because these type of areas tend to be more economically sensitive and have suffered a lot, they're quite cheap right now. That would be areas where you can look for, but we need to be completely fair. We need to see a bit of earnings news as well from those, because so far, its pretty early –– those green shoots."
