"However, towards the end of the month there was a turning point"

Iwan Peters Senior Investment Strategist

The positive equity market trend of recent months initially continued unabated in January 2021, until a turn-around set in towards the end of the month. European equities finally ended the month at a minor loss of -0.7% for the MSCI Europe index. US equities performed fairly similarly on balance, but the US dollar’s appreciation of over 1% against the euro in January pushed the MSCI North America index just in the black, with a monthly yield of +0.2%. Mainly thanks to the good performance of Asian equities (MSCI Asia Pacific index +3.2% in January), the MSCI World Developed Markets index also recorded a modestly positive monthly yield of +0.2% in euros.
