The S+P 500 index was up just 0.3%.  Emerging markets were up 3.94% while developed markets ex-US declined 2.87%.  There is still uncertainty in the markets due to questions on when and how Brexit changes will be implement and the many changes happening in UK political parties” according to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner at ETFGI.
