ACG’s Capital Markets Review

Equities staged an abrupt reversal in mid-August and finished down for the month. The S&P 500 started the month on a strong note, with the index rallying above the 4300 level by mid-month, but quickly retreated below the 4000 level to end August. The early month rally focused on the narrative of peak inflation and a potentially less hawkish Federal Reserve. By late August, however, fears of the recent rally being a bear market bounce got more traction and eventually won out.

U.S equites were down in June, with the S&P 500 posting its second-worst monthly performance of the year and moving the index deeper into bear market territory. Hotter-than-expected inflation and the Federal Reserve response in addition to recession worries remained the core narrative and resulted in a board risk-off atmosphere for the month.

U.S. equities ended the month of May essentially unchanged. The final tally, however, masked a great deal of intra-month volatility. The S&P 500 initially fell an additional 8% vs. the prior month end and hit an intra-day low on May 20th that stood (at least for a few minutes) just below the bear market threshold of a 20% peak-to-trough loss. At that point, the market rallied sharply over the next few sessions to close the month nearly flat.
