2012 Financial Benchmark Charts and Graphs

January 8, 2013

To be used for illustrative purposes in client discussions.

No recommendations are made or should be inferred from the information presented.

Past results are no indicator of future performance.

These charts continue an annual tradition I started ages ago to use when I do financial planning with clients.

The charts show a 10-year financial benchmark performance of the major stock market indexes, interest rates, currencies and gold, the annual and cumulative percentage gains or losses of the four major indexes and a comparison of an investment 10 years ago in the Dow Jones Industrial Average compared to an investment in a 5 year Bank CD that was rolled over when it came due into another 5 year CD.
