September 9 Market Close: GovCon Index Follows Markets with a Sharp Decline

GovConIndexDOWNExecutive Mosaic’s GovCon Index closed down sharply to reach a two month low. The Index retreated back to levels not seen since early July with all thirty companies declining.

Markets responded to intensified fears that the Federal Reserve could finally pull the trigger on raising rates after a nearly ten month hiatus.

Companies have benefited from lower borrowing costs which have been reflected in their stock prices. Investors responded to the potential of the Fed tightening interest rates.
