After last week's tumultuous market actions, here are a few trends that we have taken note of:
  • No asset class is up over 10% in the last one year.
  • International stocks are down about 13% over the last one year, and they are down around 20% this year alone.
  • The US is up 1.4% over the last one year, but is down 9.5% year-to-date.
  • Latin America and Emerging Europe are down over 27% this year.
  • It feels good in Jamaica right now, as their stock market is up over 23% this year.
  • Energy was down over 11% last week, and Basic Materials were down around 12%.  This places Energy down about 13% for the year, with Basic Materials down around 20% in 2011.
