Posted on 3 January, 2019 by Administrator

Global equity markets fell sharply in December, to end a year that was marked by market highs and also periods of extreme volatility. Investors remained nervous as the month progressed over slowing global economic growth and also over the potential effect on future growth from the ongoing trade wars, particularly between the U.S. & China, discounting to some extent the ‘trade truce’ agreed in Buenos Aires in early December. This led to expectations that the U.S. Federal Reserve may...

Global equity markets rose 1.3% (in € terms) during November although investors remained nervous following the sharp market falls in October. It was a volatile month with investors in the U.S becoming generally more negative on the main issues that had up to recently helped markets to hit record highs. Fears increased that the U.S. Federal Reserve would increase interest rates too sharply over 2019 which could slow the economy down, although the Fed’s comments late in the month reassured...

Global equity markets fell sharply, down 5.1% (in € terms), during October in what was a scary month for investors, a real nightmare on Wall Street. Markets in the U.S. again hit market highs early in the month but investor sentiment turned quickly as U.S government 10 year bond yields hit a seven year high on the back of strong payroll and employment reports. Investors, who had been previously reassured by the strength of the U.S. economy, now became concerned about the possibility of...

Global equities rose 0.8% (in € terms) during September. Investors concentrated more on positive shorter-term issues like strong economic data (highlighted by the expected U.S. interest rate rise) and corporate earnings as the month progressed, and less on the potential longer-term issue of the evolving global trade war (despite President Trump announcing new tariffs on $200bn of Chinese imports). Eurozone equities fell sharply on the last day of the month as the Italian government...

Global equity markets rose 1.5% (in € terms) during August. North American equities had a strong month, boosted by revised upwards Q2 GDP data and the strongest year-on-year growth in corporate profits in six years, helped by the new tax cuts. Investor concerns over the evolving global trade war abated for most of the month but resurfaced late on when President Trump announced an additional $200bn of tariffs on Chinese imports, threatened to withdraw from the World Trade Organisation...

Global equities rose 3.0% (in € terms) during July. Strong second quarter company earnings in both Europe and the U.S. reassured investors following their concerns on the evolving global trade war during May and June. However Facebook and Netflix both fell sharply after releasing disappointing earnings reports. Investors were also reassured late in the month following the meeting between President Trump and EU Commission President Juncker which saw both sides agree not to impose...

Global equity markets fell 0.4% (in € terms) during June, with markets lacking clear direction. Equities were volatile over the course of the month, mainly as a result the developing trade war which started in late May between the U.S. and a number of other countries. Markets rose and fell depending on the latest trade war rhetoric, especially from President Trump. Further tariffs of $50 billion on Chinese goods were announced, and Beijing responded with retaliatory tariffs on U.S....

Global equity markets rose 4.5% (in € terms) during May, helped by the strength of the U.S. dollar against the Euro. Equity markets rose during the first half of month, supported by generally solid corporate and economic data, but investors then got nervous over the deteriorating political situations in both Italy and Spain, with the prospect of further elections in Italy being seen potentially as a de facto referendum on euro membership although an agreement late in the month between the...

Global equities rose 2.9% (in € terms) during April, recovering some of the losses of the previous two months. At the start of April, investors remained concerned over issues with some technology stocks and also the threat of a global trade war which continued to simmer in the background. Fears that the threat of potential U.S. air strikes on Syria could lead to an even more serious situation involving Russia receded after it became apparent that the air strikes would be just one-offs for...
