The Week That Was

WTW12182015

Investors digested the Fed’s decision to raise rates by dipping back into the market and allowing several indices┬áto recover some ground lost last week. Four of the seven indices shown above are posting negative returns on a YTD basis, with Japan’s Nikkei 225 occupying 2015’s top spot thus far with a strong gain of about 8.4%. The rout in commodities has not been kind to Canada’s S&P/TSX composite, handing it ┬áthe dubious distinction of being this year’s worst performer to date (-10.92%).
