It's April Fool's Day and so begins the second calendar quarter. Below is a quick roundup of YTD (year to date) percentage change charts on a handful of broad market ETFs (funds that track the S&P, Dow Jones Industrial Average, NASDAQ 100, a US bond market index, and a Goldman Sachs commodity index). All show percent change year to date in price - these charts do not show "total return" including any dividend distributions.
Now it is time to see what Q2 brings!
