December closed out an historic year for the equity markets. The S&P 500 logged it best performance since 1997, and all the major indices seemed bullet-proof throughout the year. The final returns: S&P 500 +29.60%, Nasdaq Composite +38.32%, Dow Jones Industrial Average +26.50%, and the Russell 2000 +37.0%.
2013 was also a banner year for See It Market. Unique visitor traffic nearly doubled (+98%) and we were able to add 10 new contributors to our team. As well, we launched our “Market Masters” series and provided more research than ever before. Special thanks to our reader community for your continued support.
