This month marks the 7-year anniversary of the bull market that arose out of the financial crisis. It is the second longest bull market in history. The U.S. markets had a terrific month with the S&P 500 gaining +6.78%. The international markets were also up strongly led by emerging markets (MSCI EM +13.03%).
The high yield sector led the fixed income markets (Barclays U.S. Corp. HY +4.44%), and the long end of the treasury market was negative. The current volatility within the fixed income sectors highlights how a tactical approach to fixed income can provide value in an asset allocation.
