U.S. market investors can take a punch. The bad news from sectors like housing, consumer, the dollar, energy and other higher commodity prices seem like body blows investors are easily brushing off.
So those are the primary punches markets are absorbing. Let’s look at the major index related ETFs.
And then there are the usual suspects where outperformance continues.
So, after a little trip, we’re back to posting again.
You can make a long laundry list of all the ills that “should” be plaguing markets now. Yet one true thing remains; Mr. Market will do whatever he wants to the consternation of the best and the brightest.
Have a pleasant weekend.
