After a weak February, markets rallied in March. U.S. markets were up by low single digits, while bond markets were in the same range. International markets also showed modest gains, with developed markets about the same as the U.S. and emerging markets doing slightly better. For the quarter as a whole, the Nasdaq did best and moved into a bull market by some measures, followed by developed international markets and the S&P 500. This was a stronger start to 2023 than most had expected, and it may signal how the rest of the year will play out.
