Looking back at last week's market actions, we've noticed the following trends:
- Markets continued their summer correction last week with The World down -2.4%. That leaves the whole globe basically flat for the year.
- This year's G7 leaders, Italy and France, have predictably taken the biggest hit in the correction. Of the BRICs, Russia is the only country up for the year, while India is lagging the group down -11.2% for the year.
- Three US Sectors are now in negative territory year-to-date - Financials, Technology and Basic Materials. While on the other hand, Healthcare leads all sectors up 10% for the year.
