Below is an updated look at our asset class performance matrix using key ETFs traded on US exchanges. For each ETF, we show its performance month-to-date, quarter-to-date, and year-to-date. The Technology sector (XLK) and the Nasdaq 100 (QQQ) are big standouts to the upside so far in the third quarter, both with gains of more than 8.5%. Energy (XLE) has had a nice August so far with a gain of 1.96%, while Brazil (EWZ) continues to move sharply higher as it has done all year. Treasury ETFs are now down across the board month-to-date, but they’re still in the green for the year.
We analyze asset class performance, earnings season, economic indicators, sentiment and more in this week’s Bespoke Report newsletter. We also pack a ton of additional analysis into this week’s 30+ page report. You can read the entire thing by starting a 14-day free trial to our paid content below.
