Stocks and Commodities Down in June

 | 

From John Murphy's intermarket perfchart, we can see that stocks (S&P 500) and commodities ($CRB) were down for the month of June. In contrast, Bonds ($USB) and the Dollar ($USD) were up. Strength in the greenback weighed on commodities. In addition, it appears that strength in the Dollar helped bonds. It is also possible that money rotated from stocks to bonds in June.
