Reading Time: 2 Minutes
How are you?
Was just remarking tonight that I can’t believe we are almost at the end of July!
Anyway, thought it’d be good to have a quick review of the year that’s been.
Fortuitously I found this little beauty of a chart from the MSCI global total returns as of the end of June (ignore the headline date – there are of course only 30 days in June, but we’ll forgive the author for that).
As you can see, it’s been a GREAT year so far for those of us who are invested in the global stock market.
Unless you have your dosh in poor old Pakistan, Qatar and other bottom dwellers, you should be doing alright!
But compare this to the last time I did something like this (earlier post here) where I compared 2018 returns and 2017, you’ll see just how volatile investing in markets can be.
Incidentally, you’ll also see that however much the loss of 2018 was, most markets have clawed those back, and then some.
Just goes to show, you gotta be in it to win it as they say!
