The Latest Maket Insights 2019-Q1
After a very volatile and unrewarding year for investors in 2018, the new year started with a bang. Through March, the major stock market indices from around the world have posted very strong results. The S&P 500 Index is up 13.65 percent, the Dow Jones Industrial posted a 11.81percent return and the MSCI All World Index returned 12.65 percent. Bonds have also bounced back from their lackluster performance last year with returns of around 2 percent for core bond strategies and 4 percent or higher for riskier bond allocations. While several of the economic trends remain intact and serve as a ballast amidst uncertainty, several “other” pressing geopolitical and global issues can potentially either help or derail the markets and economies of the world, depending on their outcome.
