Asset Class Scoreboard — October

No surprise here… U.S. and World stocks remain on top for their performance so far throughout 2013… U.S. stocks now have YTD returns comfortably above the 20% level, with world stocks close on their heels.

It’s pleasant to see Managed futures show a positive performance number in October, moving up a position on the scoreboard. {Disclaimer: past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results}. By our measure Real Estate has leaped out of the red YTD, while Commodities (the only asset in October to show a negative return) dipped two spots, while Bonds remain on the bottom.
