Weekly Update 12 Jan 2024 – Happy New Year!

Stocks and bonds rose, but other asset classes were mixed. Ethereum was the best performing asset, shooting 11.4% higher on ETF speculation, followed by the Nikkei 225, up 6.5%, and the S&P 500, up 1.9%. The largest losses were in palladium, down 4.2%, platinum, down 2.9%, and Bitcoin, off 2.7%. The US Dollar finished the week unchanged (the CNY also shows unchanged, but that is due to the Shanghai Gold Exchange being closed for a long New Years celebration.) Not shown on the chart is the Russian Ruble, which outpaced other currencies to rise 2.9% this week.
