Best of the Web: 16-01-04, nr 1362

Good morning. Average is pretty rare in financial markets

Glad we have passed the peak….

2015 in review: numerous charts on the returns of various assets in 2015

And here is quite a different 2015 overview…

And dividend stocks were not the flavour of the month, apparently

Defaults, two ways of presenting it…

Cool chart (and some background reading) on the oil price decline seen in 2015

The richer the country the less hours are worked. Makes sense…

Not sure if this is correct data, but the passive part is probably true

About the length and strength of the current rally in stocks

Some interesting and pretty weird (and pretty useless) charts can be found here

And talk about not all that useful factoids: the white pawn on H2 is the safest piece on the chessboard

And the schedule for the week to come
