USA Stock Portfolio 2011 Index

USA Stock Portfolio for 20112011 was the second year of the recovery from the great bear market of 2007 to 2009. There were many analysts who called for a retrenchment of stocks in 2011. These analysts saw the recovery as failing but they forgot the old saying “don’t fight the Fed”.

Throughout 2011 Fed Chair Ben Bernanke continued with his Quantitative Easing program as the Fed’s balance sheet ballooned to one trillion dollars. Stocks stayed afloat despite a large pullback during the year and by year-end the portfolio had return 26.8%.
