My colleague Sam Millette, director, 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 continued to rally in April, as all three major U.S. indices ended in positive territory for the month. The S&P 500 gained 1.56 percent, the Dow Jones Industrial Average increased 2.57 percent, and the Nasdaq Composite showed a 0.07 percent gain. These positive results in April supported a strong start to the year for equity markets.
Since we’ve seen encouraging improvements for several factors we track in this piece, we have upgraded the overall market risk level to yellow for now.
