<p><strong>The Markets (as of market close December 29, 2017)</strong></p>

<p>While 2017 surely was a strong year for equities overall, the last week of the year was lackluster at best.&nbsp;Each of the benchmark indexes listed here posted week-over-week losses, except for the Global Dow,&nbsp;which increased 0.23%. Much of last week's performance could be attributable to nothing more than light&nbsp;trading during the holiday-shortened week. The Nasdaq, which led the way for the year, lost the most&nbsp;ground, followed by the small-cap Russell 2000. The large-cap indexes of the Dow and S&amp;P 500, which&nbsp;had been consistent gainers all year, pulled back the last week of 2017. Long-term bond prices rose,&nbsp;pushing yields on the 10-year Treasuries down more than 7 basis points by the end of the week.</p>
