World markets ticked up again in August whilst volatility remained at all-time lows. This, despite Trump firing a few more recent hires, abandoning his business think tanks (or did they abandon him?) and using twitter to threaten Kim Jong-Un of North Korea. It is no wonder the mighty US Dollar is experiencing a bit of weakness of late.
The MSCI World Index was down -0.1% in August, with the MSCI Emerging Markets Index up 2%. Emerging markets are now up 25% over the last year and developed markets are up 11%.
