January A Ball After Year-End Fall

EC The Roller Coaster December To Remember
Last month turned out to be a memorable one for stock market investors, but unforgettable for many of the wrong reasons. Santa Claus left more dark coal than shiny gifts, making it the worst December since 1931.

The investing masses generally are notoriously short-termed focused. Although the overall stock market notched another gain this month, stock values are still down roughly -8% from the January peak, which has caused some investor angst.
Tariff, Fed, & Facebook Fears But No Easter Bunny Tears
After an explosive 2017 (+19.4%) and first month of 2018 (+5.6%), the Easter Bunny came out and laid an egg last month (-2.7%).

From the peak achieved in late January, stock prices quickly dropped by -12% at the low in early February, with little-to-no explanation other than a vague blame-game on rising interest rates.

The stock market has provided its fair share of giving to investors in the form of a +2.7% monthly return in the S&P 500 index truly, stocks have been the gift that keeps on giving. But bonds have acted more like a stingy Ebenezer Scrooge.
