4 months down and stocks are off to a really nice start in 2021 but it definitely hasn’t been a straight line.
Four months in and the S&P 500 is off to a solid year-to-date gain, but as we’ve mention in past videos it certainty hasn’t taken a straight line in getting there. There was the rotation of pain we witnessed in Q1; utilities, consumer staples, and low volatility leading the market in March; and the rollercoaster ride of performance to wrap up the last two weeks of April. And that’s just a small list.
So, now that we’re in the month of May, let’s continue to follow the personality of the market. We’ll be tracking volatility, market leaders, and expectations of what the U.S. economy may start to look like as we move past government stimulus programs to an economy that is starting to stand on its own two feet.
