Asset Class Scoreboard: September 2020

Ouch – after months of rallying classes, September was a rough one (almost a callback to our red wedding in March, but a little better). The September sell-off was all we needed to make nearly all the asset classes head right back into the red, and with anticipated volatility surrounding the election, and now with […]

Asset Class Scoreboard: August 2020

July to August was probably the least movement across that board that we’ve seen so far in 2020. U.S. stocks continue to top the board month over month, as well as U.S. real estate and commodities continuing to trail in the red. Are commodities going to be able to move out of double digit red […]

Asset Class Scoreboard: July 2020

It’s hard to believe we’re in the 2nd half of this horrid year, already; but here we are reporting the first month of Q3 (July), which itself was the first month of 2020 to see every asset class we track positive. A big turnaround from how the first half of the year started out, to […]

Asset Class Scoreboard: June 2020

In exchange for being one of the only assets up in Q1, would you trade being down in Q2?  That’s the position managed futures finds itself in after a 2nd straight month of being the only red on the board. Elsewhere, it was RISK ON across the board – although at much smaller levels than […]

Asset Class Scoreboard: April 2020

With slight dips from the mid-month asset class scoreboard, April ended out in the green for every asset class across the board except for commodities. With word from abroad of economies reopening & the U.S. rolling out a slow open across the country, assets classes have bounced back considerably from the month before. Managed futures […]

Asset Class Scoreboard: Mid-April 2020

Earlier this month we reported on asset class performance: March 2020: Red Wedding Version; and as far as YTD is concerned, it’s the Red Wedding Part 2. But for mid-month asset class performance on it’s own, we’re seeing some positive growth fueled by stimulus checks and increasing confidence from American investors — and to be […]

Asset Class Scoreboard: (red wedding version) March 2020

March was ugly, like real ugly. Here was a live (somewhat dramatized via GOT look in around the lows on March 23rd):    It was a red wedding to be sure, with not just red across the board, but deep, dramatic shades of red. Like, the DOW with its worst first quarter ever shades […]

How’s your (Alts) Portfolio Doing?

Last week was a great time to look in the (portfolio) mirror and ask yourself what you see. As Taylor Pearson of Mutiny put it succinctly on Twitter: If the stock market dropping 5% causes you to freak out, it’s probably a good time to re-evaluate either/both: 1. The effectiveness of your portfolio’s diversification 2. […]

Asset Class Scoreboard: February 2020

Well…that was a rude awakening. Volatility came back with a vengeance in Feb, logging the 5th worst VIX spike in the past 20 years. And it wasn’t just stocks… world stocks, real estate, and commodities all got smacked into the red. Coronavirus fears spiking, Presidential election twitter posts…..all the things we mentioned in our 2020 outlook […]
