Unfortunately December didn’t give us the Santa Claus rally that we were all hoping for, the markets were more of a Nightmare Before Christmas.
November was another good month for equity markets, and a good one for fixed income markets as well.
October was a good month for equity markets, but a mixed one for fixed income as central banks continue to raise interest rates.
September was a follow on of the declines seen in August, as almost everything declined across both equity and fixed income markets.
August was a negative month for almost everything; both equity and fixed income markets declined.
July was strong month for both equity and fixed income investors alike.
June was a difficult month for equity and fixed income investors alike.
May was mixed for equity markets, though none showed much strength. Fixed income was also mixed, and certainly didn’t provide much of a safe haven from equity market volatility.
