    We saw a generally positive week for the developed markets, although a stronger dollar muted some of the overseas returns. For the week the S&P advanced +1.6% while small-cap stocks added +2.7%. France and Germany were up +2.2% and +1.3% respectively but a weaker euro (off -1.8%) capped the returns for unhedged investors. The emerging markets struggled again. Chinese A-shares were off -3.3% and the emerging index dipped -0.6%...

    Tough week in the equity markets, but Friday’s rally helped moderate the losses. Growing recession fears (rational or not) as well as justified concerns about bank profitability weighed on the markets. For the week the S&P lost -0.8% while international equities were hit for -2.8%. While the losses this week were broad based, the emotional reaction has been something else. ...
