“In January, equity markets rebounded from Q4 when global equities suffered steep declines amid persistent worries over trade and economic growth.
Fed chair Powell revised his stance on where he believes the neutral rate of interest lies, easing fears of a dramatic and painful tightening cycle.
Energy’s decline during the Q4 rout subdued inflation in developed economies taking hiking pressure off central banks while provided stimulus to consumers and businesses, giving stronger core metrics.
The S&P 500 finished January up 8.01%, the best January since 1987, while the S&P Topix 150 gained 7.26% and the S&P Europe 350 gained 6.23%.
Emerging and Frontier markets were up 7.77% and 4.61% respectively, hampered by dollar strength.” according to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner and founder of ETFGI.
