“Throughout February markets pushed higher, resulting in the best start to the year since 1996, with major US indices comfortably erasing any hangover felt from the Q4 ’18 market rout. US-China trade talks appeared to have made good progress while Brexit stalled even with the 29th march deadline looming. Central banks in the developed economies have maintained an accommodative stance to ease growth slowdown fears, with the US Federal Reserve reiterating their new ‘patient’ policy stance. The S&P 500 was up 3.21% by the end of February bringing year-to-date returns to 11.48%, similarly the S&P Europe 350 was up 3.45% for the month, with year-to-date returns of 9.89%.

Emerging and frontier markets saw more modest gains, finishing February up 0.74% and 2.62%, bringing year-to-date returns to 8.56% and 7.35%, respectively.” according to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner and founder of ETFGI.
