    ETF Scorecard: January 11 Edition

    To help investors keep up with the markets, we present our ETF Scorecard. The Scorecard takes a step back and looks at how various asset classes across the globe are performing. The weekly performance is from last Friday’s open to this week’s Thursday close. Despite worries about trade wars and an economic slowdown across the board, the U.S. job market is making great strides. In the last month of 2018, the U.S. economy added 312,000 jobs, nearly double the figure expected by analysts. The showing for November itself was revised up by 21,000 to 176,000. At the same time, hourly earnings increased by 0.4% in December on average compared with 0.3% expected by pundits. Such a rise in hourly earnings has not been seen since September. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate jumped from 3.7% to 3.9%, a sign the labor market is expanding and more people are joining the labor force. Amid market turbulence, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell attempted to ease market concerns, saying he was aware of the risks stemmed from raising interest rates too quickly and was listening carefully to what the markets had to say. Stocks posted a strong rally this week. On Thursday, Powell spoke again, saying the Fed can be patient on monetary policy given the stable inflation. The Federal Reserve minutes revealed that policymakers have become more dovish, finally acknowledging the risks related to a slowdown in China, trade wars and political turbulence. U.S. non-manufacturing purchasing managers’ index (PMI) dropped dramatically in December, from 60.7 to 57.6, signaling a deteriorating sentiment. U.S. crude oil inventories declined by 1.7 million barrels in the week ended January 4, following two straight weeks of flat gains. Stockpiles have not seen a weekly rise since the end of November when they ended a ten-week streak of gains. U.K. economic output expanded 0.2% in November, beating expectations of 0.1%. The upbeat figure comes as the country still struggles to reach a Brexit solution, with the government and the Parliament at odds. An increasingly likely scenario is to push back the March 29 exit date to avoid chaos.

    Why Citigroup Sees Recent Panic as a Buying Opportunity

    Citigroup’s (C) US equity strategist, Tobias Levkovich, said that stock market investors have finally entered panic mode after the wild ride at the end of 2018. According to CNBC, Levkovich said this panic indicates “high probabilities of making money (with average 18% upward moves looking out 12 months).” The firm’s sentiment gauge has a good track record in predicting euphoria, which typically precedes a pullback and panic and is usually associated with a potential surge.

    This Commodity Boasts One Of The Best-Performing ETFs For January

    The iShares Silver Trust (NYSE: SLV), the largest silver exchange traded fund listed in the U.S., lost 8.74 percent last year, but seasonal traders may want to consider the silver fund in the first month of 2019. Aside from the palladium fund, precious metals ETFs generally struggled last year as the Federal Reserve raised interest rates four times and the dollar rallied. Higher interest rates often diminish the allure of gold or silver because those assets and the related ETFs, like SLV, don't pay interest or dividends.

In contrast to Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s bullish view on gold (GLD) in 2019, JPMorgan Chase (JPM) expects gold (NUGT) and silver’s (SLV) performance to remain to lukewarm—at least in the first half of 2019. Unlike BAML, JPM is neutral on gold and silver in the first half of 2019 and expects prices to hold between $1,200 and $1,250 per ounce.

    Gold falls to 3-week low, but notches solid monthly gain

    Gold prices ended around a three-week low Wednesday, on the back of a stronger dollar and a bounce for beaten-down equities, but month-to-date losses for benchmark U.S. stock indexes have helped to pull prices for the precious metal up in October. U.S. economic data Wednesday mark “a return to risk-on equities,” with much stronger ADP October jobs’ numbers leading gold lower, said Jeff Wright, executive vice president of mineral exploration company GoldMining Inc.
