Market Month Update - June 10, 2019

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%.

I will be sharing my perspective on the market via a video shortly.

What to expect from this blog


Salim A. Nathani

I have committed to write a post each month and set my calendar to do so. I might just surprise myself and write more. Time will tell. These posts will generally fall under one of the following categories:

  • State of global and US economy

  • Identifying the long term trends in financial markets

  • Issues pertaining to personal finance specifically in estate, tax and investments

  • Managing investment risk

  • Info and updates on Benzer Capital, our team, my life and work

Some may find the topics exciting and others not so much. I will attempt to make it a fun read with pictures, stories, videos and podcasts. Perhaps a sprinkle of the famous Mr. Nathani Quotes or humor of the day.

If you are wondering who I am or want to learn more about my work, you can check out this link and learn more. You can also read my story and what motivated me to get started on the path to generational planning.

Until next time.
