LCP Investment Summary November 2019
Posted on 2 December, 2019 by Administrator
Global equity markets rose 3.8% (in € terms) in November. Markets in the U.S. continued to hit record highs as many investors looked to the positives of the various trade, economic and earnings updates. Although there was still no specific details announced of the ‘phase one’ trade deal between the U.S. and China, optimism remained high that a deal was imminent despite both sides, as usual, giving conflicting signals including a new U.S. bill supporting the Hong Kong protestors near month end.Europ
ean markets were also well up, mirroring the positive tone seen in the U.S. Global economic data was mixed but generally solid employment data in both the U.S. and Germany reassured investors. The minutes from the U.S. Federal Reserve’s October meeting suggested that they were unlikely to cut rates again unless the economy showed signs of weakening.
Longer-dated eurozone bond prices fell 0.8% over the month, with the yield on the AAA Eurozone 15+ Year Index rising to 0.04% by month-end. The Euro Broad Sovereign 10+ Year Index fell by 1.8% with its yield rising to 0.75%.
Eurozone bond yields rose strongly by mid-month on the back of positive global trade and economic news. They then fell back following some conflicting statements from both the U.S. and China on trade issues but picked up again at month end following the release of stronger-than-expected Eurozone inflation.
