As we approach mid-year 2019 mark, markets have had a full cycle of ups and downs with some indexes flirting with all-time highs and with some like Nasdaq flirting with correction territory all within a matter of a few weeks.
For the month of May 2019, US stocks were down -6.45% and US Bonds were up 1.83%. International [Ex-US} was down -5.49% while Real Estate markets were up a fraction at 0.10%. Still the markets year to date overall remain in healthy territory. US Stocks are up 10.89% and Bonds are up 4.85%, while International is up 10.15% and Real Estate charging ahead at 17.3%.
