Monday, May 8th marked the six-month point since Trump was elected on 11/8/16. Below is a look at our asset class performance matrix, which highlights the total return of a wide variety of ETFs. The three time frames used in this edition of the matrix are since the election (11/8/16), year-to-date, and this week.
As shown, equities in the US faded a bit this week, but they’re still up massively since the election. Performance for foreign markets was scattered this week, with Brazil surging 5.7% and Spain falling 3.6%. Commodities had a bounce back week, but they’re still down since the election with the exception of UNG. Treasury ETFs saw a slight week-over-week bounce, and they’re now solidly in the green on the year even though they’re still down since the election.
