Last week…the volatility continued.




There were very few asset classes that were up from the previous week and now even less that reflects a positive YTD return. All US Equities were down anywhere from 3 to over 7.5%. Our previous top US Equity, Small Value took the biggest slip last week.


REITS, both US & Global were down again from the previous week. Commodities was one of our 3 up from the previous week gaining another 1.8%, now over 6% YTD.


Overall Foreign Equities did better than the US last week and overall YTD. Even though Foreign Value went down, it remains positive YTD. Could we be seeing a rotation of growth shifting from the US to Foreign markets?


Emerging Markets and TIPS were the only bonds that barely budged up.


Have a great weekend!
