During the month of July, the S&P GSCI (+9.80%) and Energies (+9.18.%) were the top performers. The bottom performers were Crypto (-4.02%) and Grains (-3.78%). Despite the fed raising interest rates in July, the S&P GSCI (+9.80%) produced one of its best months since January of 2022. The S&P 500 (+3.11%) notched its fifth consecutive month of gains, its longest winning streak since 2021. Crypto (-4.02%) had only its second losing month this year, with Interest rates (-0.79%) staying just about flat. As summer strings on and we shift into August, there will not be another FOMC meeting until September 19th, but we do have football season to look forward to!
