The buzz around electric vehicles in the past several years has excited investors about the industry. Nio, a Chinese electric vehicle designer, manufacturer, and seller, is no exception. The company's share price movement has had its ups and downs however some market commentators indicate that the company’s fundamentals have remained the same and that the recent share price volatility has resulted from other market forces, particularly the performance of the U.S. 10-year Treasury Bond i.e. rising interest rates.

In this blog, we consider how investors can take exposure to property as an asset class by investing in either open-ended or closed-end funds. It is likely that physically-owned property is one of the biggest single investments that many investors will make, indeed there are some who will have additional exposure through the ownership of rental properties and/or second homes. We are not going to look at direct property purchases, which typically involves taking on some form of borrowing via a mortgage, possibly the most common way individuals make use of leverage in their lives.

U.S. stock markets moved lower early last week pressured by inflation concerns arising from surging oil prices and continued shipping and production bottlenecks as well as by the advent of 3rd quarter earnings reports (the IMF’s lower global growth forecast Tuesday also pressured markets). Down close to 1% through Tuesday, U.S stock markets rallied the remainder of the week powered by better-than-expected bank earnings and stronger-than-expected retail sales and jobless claims. A record high CPI release Wednesday, while increasing expectations of Fed tapering sooner than later (confirmed by the FOMC minutes released Wednesday), seemingly had little effect on markets. Thursday’s lower-than-expected PPI release may have eased those expectations perhaps helping U.S stock markets to power 1.5% to 1.7% higher. The 10-year U.S. Treasury rate, reacting conversely to Fed tapering expectations, fell 10bps through Thursday but rose 6bps Friday to finish the week lower by 4bps. Interestingly the U.S dollar (as measured by the DXY Index), stronger by ½ percent through Tuesday, weakened almost ½ percent Wednesday and finished the week lower by 0.1%. For the week, the S&P 500 Index rose 1.8% to 4,471.37, the Nasdaq Composite Index jumped 2.2% to 14,897.30, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 1.6% to 35,295.48, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate fell 4bps to 1.57% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) weakened 0.1%.

A bumpy start last week with major U.S. stock indexes falling sharply and with the Nasdaq Composite Index faring the worst by far. Increasing inflation and Fed-tapering concerns, spurred by Friday’s PCE price index release, combined with a debt-ceiling overhang, pushed 10-year U.S. Treasury rates higher and stock prices – especially tech stock prices – lower (Facebook’s unprecedented outage Monday also affected the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index). Stock markets rebounded sharply Tuesday and then continued higher through Thursday buoyed by a better-than-expected ISM services index release, falling weekly and continued jobless claims and substantive progress on a short-term debt ceiling extension. Friday’s much weaker-than-expected payroll report moved stock markets slightly lower while at the same time pulling the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate above 1.6%. For the week, the S&P 500 Index rose 0.8% to 4,392.36, the Nasdaq Composite Index increased 0.1% to 14,579.50, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 1.2% to 34,746.71, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate jumped 15bp to 1.61% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) was practically unchanged.

Concerns of central bank tightening and growing inflation concerns precipitated steep declines in U.S. stock markets with all three major U.S. stock indexes falling 3% or more through Thursday. Fed Chairman Powell’s prepared remarks before Congress on Tuesday reiterated remarks made after the most recent FOMC meeting, saying the Fed could begin tapering in November and that higher inflation could last longer than initially anticipated before moderating toward the Fed’s 2% goal, uneased stock and bond markets with the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increasing over 9bps through Tuesday, and U.S. stock markets dropping between 1.5% and 3%. Debt ceiling and government shutdown concerns and President Biden’s $3.5 trillion spending bill also unnerved markets with Congress at a debt-ceiling impasse leading to warnings of default and credit rating downgrades. Stock markets rebounded Friday with investor risk-on appetite apparently returning with Congress approving a stopgap, government-funding bill and as the U.S dollar fell from its almost 1-year high and the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate finished the week only slightly higher. The PCE price index, released Friday, increased an as-expected 3.5%, perhaps helping to reduce inflation concerns. For the week, the S&P 500 Index fell 2.2% to 4,357.05, the Nasdaq Composite Index dropped 3.2% to 14,566.70, the Dow Jones Industrial Average decreased 1.4% to 34,327.45, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 1bp to 1.46% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened 0.8% percent.

U.S. stock markets began the week on uneasy terms with Evergrande contagion concerns and FOMC announcement anxiety pushing all three major indexes about 2% lower. U.S stock markets, stagnating on Tuesday, moved higher the rest of the week, fortified by a somewhat-as-exprected FOMC announcement and optimism Evergrande would avoid immediate default. Wednesday’s FOMC announcement indicated the Fed would likely begin tapering November (with bond buybacks to be eliminated by June next year) with at least one rate hike in 2022 followed by another 2-3 hikes in 2023. The Fed’s willingness to slightly and gradually tighten its ultra-easy monetary policy signalled it believed the U.S. economy was strong and at the same time eased investor concerns of possible fallout from Fed inaction. Interestingly, the 10-year U.S Treasury rate, down 6bps through Wednesday, jumped 13bps higher Thursday and another 2bp Friday perhaps as a delayed reaction to the FOMC announcement and perhaps as a result of lessened Evergrande contagion fears. For the week, the S&P 500 Index rose 0.5% to 4,455.48, the Nasdaq Composite Index was almost unchanged at 15,047.70, the Dow Jones Industrial Average increased 0.6% to 34,797.60, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 9bps to 1.45% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened 0.1% percent.

Another volatile week for U.S. stock markets with conflicting economic data adding uncertainty in the face of this week’s FOMC meeting. President Biden’s tax-hike plan, weakening Chinese growth, continued Covid concerns, a slightly lower-than-expected increase in CPI and much stronger-thanforecasted retail sales left markets unsettled and increased uncertaintly regarding possible Fed actions at the 2-day FOMC meeting beginning Tuesday this week. All three major U.S. indexes, up around 0.4% through Thursday, ended the week in the red after falling between ½ and 1 percent on Friday. 10-year U.S. Treasury rates reflected this uncertainty, too, falling 6bps through Tuesday (following the CPI release) and then increasing 8bps the remainder of the week. Similary, the DXY Dollar Index, unchanged through Wednesday, strengthened almost ¾ percent over Thursday and Friday. For the week, the S&P 500 Index fell -0.6% to 4,432.99, the Nasdaq Composite Index dropped 0.5% to 15,044.00, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.1% to 34,584.88, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 2bps to 1.36% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened 0.7% percent.

The buzz around electric vehicles in the past several years has excited investors about the industry. Nio, a Chinese electric vehicle designer, manufacturer, and seller, is no exception. The company's share price movement has had its ups and downs however some market commentators indicate that the company’s fundamentals have remained the same and that the recent share price volatility has resulted from other market forces, particularly the performance of the U.S. 10-year Treasury Bond i.e. rising interest rates.

In this blog, we consider how investors can take exposure to property as an asset class by investing in either open-ended or closed-end funds. It is likely that physically-owned property is one of the biggest single investments that many investors will make, indeed there are some who will have additional exposure through the ownership of rental properties and/or second homes. We are not going to look at direct property purchases, which typically involves taking on some form of borrowing via a mortgage, possibly the most common way individuals make use of leverage in their lives.

U.S. stock markets moved lower early last week pressured by inflation concerns arising from surging oil prices and continued shipping and production bottlenecks as well as by the advent of 3rd quarter earnings reports (the IMF’s lower global growth forecast Tuesday also pressured markets). Down close to 1% through Tuesday, U.S stock markets rallied the remainder of the week powered by better-than-expected bank earnings and stronger-than-expected retail sales and jobless claims. A record high CPI release Wednesday, while increasing expectations of Fed tapering sooner than later (confirmed by the FOMC minutes released Wednesday), seemingly had little effect on markets. Thursday’s lower-than-expected PPI release may have eased those expectations perhaps helping U.S stock markets to power 1.5% to 1.7% higher. The 10-year U.S. Treasury rate, reacting conversely to Fed tapering expectations, fell 10bps through Thursday but rose 6bps Friday to finish the week lower by 4bps. Interestingly the U.S dollar (as measured by the DXY Index), stronger by ½ percent through Tuesday, weakened almost ½ percent Wednesday and finished the week lower by 0.1%. For the week, the S&P 500 Index rose 1.8% to 4,471.37, the Nasdaq Composite Index jumped 2.2% to 14,897.30, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 1.6% to 35,295.48, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate fell 4bps to 1.57% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) weakened 0.1%.

A bumpy start last week with major U.S. stock indexes falling sharply and with the Nasdaq Composite Index faring the worst by far. Increasing inflation and Fed-tapering concerns, spurred by Friday’s PCE price index release, combined with a debt-ceiling overhang, pushed 10-year U.S. Treasury rates higher and stock prices – especially tech stock prices – lower (Facebook’s unprecedented outage Monday also affected the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index). Stock markets rebounded sharply Tuesday and then continued higher through Thursday buoyed by a better-than-expected ISM services index release, falling weekly and continued jobless claims and substantive progress on a short-term debt ceiling extension. Friday’s much weaker-than-expected payroll report moved stock markets slightly lower while at the same time pulling the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate above 1.6%. For the week, the S&P 500 Index rose 0.8% to 4,392.36, the Nasdaq Composite Index increased 0.1% to 14,579.50, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 1.2% to 34,746.71, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate jumped 15bp to 1.61% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) was practically unchanged.

Concerns of central bank tightening and growing inflation concerns precipitated steep declines in U.S. stock markets with all three major U.S. stock indexes falling 3% or more through Thursday. Fed Chairman Powell’s prepared remarks before Congress on Tuesday reiterated remarks made after the most recent FOMC meeting, saying the Fed could begin tapering in November and that higher inflation could last longer than initially anticipated before moderating toward the Fed’s 2% goal, uneased stock and bond markets with the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increasing over 9bps through Tuesday, and U.S. stock markets dropping between 1.5% and 3%. Debt ceiling and government shutdown concerns and President Biden’s $3.5 trillion spending bill also unnerved markets with Congress at a debt-ceiling impasse leading to warnings of default and credit rating downgrades. Stock markets rebounded Friday with investor risk-on appetite apparently returning with Congress approving a stopgap, government-funding bill and as the U.S dollar fell from its almost 1-year high and the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate finished the week only slightly higher. The PCE price index, released Friday, increased an as-expected 3.5%, perhaps helping to reduce inflation concerns. For the week, the S&P 500 Index fell 2.2% to 4,357.05, the Nasdaq Composite Index dropped 3.2% to 14,566.70, the Dow Jones Industrial Average decreased 1.4% to 34,327.45, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 1bp to 1.46% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened 0.8% percent.

U.S. stock markets began the week on uneasy terms with Evergrande contagion concerns and FOMC announcement anxiety pushing all three major indexes about 2% lower. U.S stock markets, stagnating on Tuesday, moved higher the rest of the week, fortified by a somewhat-as-exprected FOMC announcement and optimism Evergrande would avoid immediate default. Wednesday’s FOMC announcement indicated the Fed would likely begin tapering November (with bond buybacks to be eliminated by June next year) with at least one rate hike in 2022 followed by another 2-3 hikes in 2023. The Fed’s willingness to slightly and gradually tighten its ultra-easy monetary policy signalled it believed the U.S. economy was strong and at the same time eased investor concerns of possible fallout from Fed inaction. Interestingly, the 10-year U.S Treasury rate, down 6bps through Wednesday, jumped 13bps higher Thursday and another 2bp Friday perhaps as a delayed reaction to the FOMC announcement and perhaps as a result of lessened Evergrande contagion fears. For the week, the S&P 500 Index rose 0.5% to 4,455.48, the Nasdaq Composite Index was almost unchanged at 15,047.70, the Dow Jones Industrial Average increased 0.6% to 34,797.60, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 9bps to 1.45% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened 0.1% percent.

Another volatile week for U.S. stock markets with conflicting economic data adding uncertainty in the face of this week’s FOMC meeting. President Biden’s tax-hike plan, weakening Chinese growth, continued Covid concerns, a slightly lower-than-expected increase in CPI and much stronger-thanforecasted retail sales left markets unsettled and increased uncertaintly regarding possible Fed actions at the 2-day FOMC meeting beginning Tuesday this week. All three major U.S. indexes, up around 0.4% through Thursday, ended the week in the red after falling between ½ and 1 percent on Friday. 10-year U.S. Treasury rates reflected this uncertainty, too, falling 6bps through Tuesday (following the CPI release) and then increasing 8bps the remainder of the week. Similary, the DXY Dollar Index, unchanged through Wednesday, strengthened almost ¾ percent over Thursday and Friday. For the week, the S&P 500 Index fell -0.6% to 4,432.99, the Nasdaq Composite Index dropped 0.5% to 15,044.00, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.1% to 34,584.88, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate increased 2bps to 1.36% and the U.S. dollar (as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar index - DXY) strengthened 0.7% percent.
