Last Week’s Major Asset Class Performance Chart

This Wall Street Journal chart shows last week’s performance of different major global financial markets.

What’s different from the previous three weeks, and as the chart above illustrates – which shows return correlations between various asset classes, REIT’s are no longer the top gainer class (REIT’s shed 5.0% during the week). Instead, U.S. investment grade bonds have taken the list’s top spot by recording a modest gain of 1.4%. Global Stocks’ came in second with 0.2%.

On a year-over-basis [y/y], excluding U.S. IG bonds, U.S. Corp. junks, greenback trade-w, and EMS, the rest of the asset classes remain still in the red.
