As Risk-Off Messages Go, Markets Couldn’t Be Any Clearer In June

In June, losses weighed on every slice of the major asset classes, based on a set of proxy ETFs. Even cash took a hit, albeit a fractional one.

Selling took a toll far and wide last month, with the foreign stocks in developed markets falling the most. VEA lost 9.2% in June, leaving it in the red by nearly 19% year to date.

US stocks (VTI) suffered nearly as much and for 2022 the loss in American shares exceeds 21%. US bonds (BND) are nursing lesser losses, but by fixed-income standards it’s fair to say that everyone’s favorite safe haven looks decidedly risky this year via a 10.3% year-to-date decline.

The Global Market Index (GMI) continued to lose ground in June. This unmanaged benchmark (maintained by CapitalSpectator.com), which holds all the major asset classes (except cash) in market-value weights, tumbled 7.1% last month and lost 18.9% year to date.

Comparing GMI’s performance to US stocks and bonds over the past year highlights that bonds (BND) are providing some ballast recently, at least in relative terms – an attribute that previously had been in short supply for 2022.

We encourage you to use comments to engage with other users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind:  

  •            Enrich the conversation, don’t trash it.

  •           Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed. 

  •           Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically. Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user. Racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination will not be tolerated.

  • Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases. Comments that are written in all caps and contain excessive use of symbols will be removed.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and comments containing links will be removed. Phone numbers, email addresses, links to personal or business websites, Skype/Telegram/WhatsApp etc. addresses (including links to groups) will also be removed; self-promotional material or business-related solicitations or PR (ie, contact me for signals/advice etc.), and/or any other comment that contains personal contact specifcs or advertising will be removed as well. In addition, any of the above-mentioned violations may result in suspension of your account.
  • Doxxing. We do not allow any sharing of private or personal contact or other information about any individual or organization. This will result in immediate suspension of the commentor and his or her account.
  • Don’t monopolize the conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also strongly believe in giving everyone a chance to air their point of view. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended. If we receive complaints about individuals who take over a thread or forum, we reserve the right to ban them from the site, without recourse.
  • Only English comments will be allowed.

Perpetrators of spam or abuse will be deleted from the site and prohibited from future registration at Investing.com’s discretion.
