Who’s On The Scoreboard Five Minutes In by Attain Capital
If this were a football game (American football), we would be just 5 minutes into the first quarter, making any look at the scoreboard premature to say the least. But hey, months do end, and each asset class posts its number up there on the board for all to see. For those in the red to start the year, there’s a lot of game left… don’t worry about it. And for those, like managed futures, getting out to an early lead – it’s a nice cushion to have against any down periods through the rest of the year.
Enjoy the rest of the game!
