Updates on how dynamic, risk-managed investment solutions are performing in the current market environment.

U.S. equity markets posted gains in all three indexes last week. The NASDAQ Composite gained 9.01%, the S&P 500 gained 7.32%, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 6.87%. All 11 sectors were up last week; Information Technology, which posted the largest gain, was up by 9.70%.

The major stock market indexes fell last week. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost about 0.75%, the S&P 500 Index fell 0.28%, the NASDAQ 100 dropped 1.52%, and the Russell 2000 small-capitalization index fell 0.39%. The 10-year Treasury bond yield fell about 4 basis points, as Treasury bonds gained ground for the week. Last week, spot gold gained more than 5%, behaving like a safe-haven asset as stocks took a break from their recent climb.
