2016: A Year In Review

Its been quite a year.

Having started off with one of the steepest declines to begin a year in recent memory, the major indices steadied through the bulk of the year, soldiered through the Brexit referendum, but saved their most surprising move for last. After the US election, the markets defied expectations and staged a huge rally to finish the year, despite tapering off towards the end.

Below are a set of charts showing the full year 2016 for a select set of indicies and asset classes.
