Market Review

At the beginning of the year, the stock market received a tailwind from the USA. The outcome of the US elections for the senatorial seats was received very positively and the inauguration of Joe Biden was also accompanied by strong price gains, particularly in the USA. The entire month of January was characterized by very low volatility until the last week of January, during which the VIX (R) index jumped by as much as 75% and recorded yearly highs of up to 37. The jump caused some investors to build hedges and take profits before the end of the month. Some benchmarks, and therefore ETFs on those benchmarks, fell sharply last week. 11 out of 12 Traderama Quant Portfolios significantly outperformed their related benchmarks.
