Our Observations: Correlations are very low in nearly every asset class. This is a little bit surprising given the volatility of the bond market, which should be signaling other parts of the market, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. However, we think it would be smart to keep an eye out for correlations to interest rates in other parts of the market.
The correlation figure measures how each asset return moves in relationship to the broader basket of asset returns listed on the X axis. When correlations are high or rising, it may indicate that economic movements and sentiment are driving the majority of returns, which could potentially make security selection challenging.
