Major Markets Performance

Major markets generally declined in the month of May in response to an unexpected twist in the trade talks between the U.S. and China. Meanwhile, U.K. Prime Minister Teresa May announced her resignation, which added some uncertainty over Brexit. The S&P 500 and the FTSE 100 fell 6.6% and 3.5% respectively. In Asia, Japan’s Nikkei 225, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index and Singapore’s Straits Times Index retreated 7%-9%. The Chinese onshore and offshore equity markets also fell 7%-10%. Emerging markets’ performance generally followed the broader market into negative territory. India was among the markets least affected. The MSCI India Index was up 0.1%, following the conclusion of the country’s general election.
