Only post-election have interest rate sensitive sectors moved in response to anticipated rate increases in 2017. Late year rising bond yields during the quarter resulted in outright declines in bond-proxy sectors, such as utilities, staples, and real estate. In 2015 the China stock market declined, setting off global market declines and a return to volatility, but by late year that was all behind us or so we thought. 2016 started with another steep sell-off in the Chinese stock market which in turn caused global markets to sell off.
