Putting the U.K.’s decision to leave the European Union in the context of other market shocks, here are their key takeaways:

  • Brexit puts Fed on hold — the analysts believe a July or September interest rate hike is out of the question at this point.
  • Although there was certainly a great deal of panic Friday and Monday, it should be noted that there hasn’t been any real significant change of the underlying trend in the S&P or the 10-year US Treasury yield.
  • Historical returns following market panics — after some statistical analysis, Canaccord told investors that when the market has seen similar circumstances 1) the median gain 3 months later was 5.9 percent 2) the market rose 12 out of 14 times, with an average gain of 3 percent.
