Last week…the volatility returned.



In US Equities, it was interesting that the Dow Jones was down while the S&P 500 was up. We noted another pattern in US Equities – Growth companies were all up while value companies were all down from the previous week. Small Growth was up the most, nearly 2.5% while Small Value was down the least.


US and Global Real Estate markets were both down. Commodities also slipped about 4% as gas prices continue to move down.


Foreign Equities did not exhibit the same pattern as the US. All were down, even growth.


Emerging Markets however showed some life and were up over .75%


Bonds are bubbling on. US High Yields and Emerging Market Bonds were up a little while the rest were down.


Have a great weekend!
