Week Ending 1/11/13 S&P 500, Asset Class & Sector Performance

The markets moved higher across the board this week.  There were only small pockets of weakness around the globe.  Health care stocks led the way with the biggest gains, which is not surprising if you follow my month historical sector analysis.  Also showing continued signs of strength were European related equities which continued their strong move higher.
