March 8, 2022

The start of 2022 has been incredibly exhausting for investors. While Canada is level on the year solely in part to sky rocketing oil prices, global markets are down across the board. The S&P 500 and Dow Index have entered correction territory (down -10% from peak) while the Nasdaq, Russell 2000 and European indexes have entered or are getting near bear market territory. Investors who have been nervous about a potential policy mistake by the U.S. Federal Reserve have to now deal with the ongoing tensions between Russia and Ukraine. Over the past decade, only 2016 and 2020 saw a drop of more than 10% in the S&P 500 in the first quarter. Historically, we typically don’t experience weak starts to the year, but the most recent turn of events has put additional pressure on markets. Attached is my monthly “market perspectives” as I do my best putting recent market movements into context.
