Q1 2021 Market review
The stock market continued its upward climb in the first quarter of 2021, while bonds faced headwinds of rising interest rates resulting in lower prices. The US stock market was up over 6%, international stocks were up over 4% and emerging market stocks were up over 2%. Bonds in the US fell around 3.4% and globally were down almost 2%. Though the drop in bonds was fairly tame relative to the ups and downs that the stock market often experiences, this quarter was one of the worst on record for US bonds.
