Stock market: current trends in 4 charts

01/17/2022 | 10:56am EDT

This section features four charts that shed light on the current major market trends, in terms of equity markets by sector, commodities, currency and investment styles. Over the first half of 2022, energy has taken over along with value. Across equity markets, oil and gas, financials and materials are leading.

The first chart shows the sector performance in 2022. The energy sector still leads the way, ahead of financials and commodities. The other sectors are in negative territory, particularly information technology, healthcare, real estate and consumer discretionary:

On the foreign exchange market, variations are contained even if we note the slight appreciation of the euro against the dollar and the franc.

On the commodity prices side, the trend visible in energy sector stocks is confirmed with energy prices (oil, natural gas) accelerating by 8% since the beginning of the year. Industrial metals (aluminum, copper, nickel, zinc and lead) are following suit, but by a long way.
