The past couple of weeks have seen major swoons in the stock market and U.S. Treasuries. As of this writing, the selloff has been continuing. However, I still hold out hope that we could see stocks finish higher than where they are now by year-end. Yes, Virginia, there still is the possibility of a “Santa Pause.”

The big North American stock indices posted losses again on the week, as investors reacted to slower-than-expected growth in both China and the eurozone. In addition, the European Central Bank announced earlier this week that it is ending its €2.6 trillion (US$3.9 trillion) bond buying program even as the eurozone posted a marginal 0.2% GDP growth rate in the third quarter. Markets continued their downtrend on Friday, despite some signs of easing in the U.S.-China trade dispute, a 0.2% monthly increase in U.S. retail sales in November, and a 0.6% increase in industrial production. The blue-chip Dow Jones Industrial Average is now down more than 10% from its October high, a decline that puts it into correction territory. The S&P 500 Composite Index fell 1.3% on the week, while the Nasdaq Composite Index lost 0.8%. Toronto’s S&P/TSX Composite Index retreated 1.4%, dragged down by the energy sector as crude oil fell 1.9% on the week.

The Invesco FTSE RAFI Canadian Fundamental ETF continues to lag, as market sentiment has not yet rotated away from the growth story to fundamentals, although the volatile environment over the past several weeks suggests a shift may well be underway. Together with heavy exposure to the energy sector, this has contributed to the fund’s underperforming the broader S&P/TSX Composite Index Total Return benchmark in the shorter term, dropping 3.4% in the 12 months ending Nov. 30, compared with a loss of 2.5% for the S&P/TSX. But the fund still outperformed the Canadian Equity category as a whole.
