My colleague Sam Millette, manager, fixed income on Commonwealth’s Investment Management and Research team, helped me put together this month’s Market Risk Update. Thanks for the assist, Sam! Let’s take a closer look.
Equity markets experienced continued gains in November following a positive October. The S&P 500 gained 5.59 percent during the month, while the Nasdaq Composite saw a 4.51 percent gain. The Dow Jones Industrial Average had the best month of the three major indices, rising 6.04 percent.
While these results were encouraging, all three indices remain in the red for the year. We've kept the overall market risk level at a red light for now.
