Welcome to the May edition of Super Informed eNews.
In March, global share markets consolidated the strong gains of the past few months.
Global share markets continued to rise in February, taking a lead from the US—where investors continue to respond positively to the pro-growth aspects of the Trump administration’s policy agenda.
The positive tone that has prevailed in global share markets since Donald Trump’s election as US President continued into January, though a sense of uncertainty is starting to creep in.
The surprise result of the US presidential election has dominated market movements in recent weeks.
Welcome to the November edition of Super Informed eNews.
Though the Australian share market ended flat for September, the month was by no means a steady journey.
The new financial year has got off to an interesting start with August losses eroding some of July's gains.
Despite some uncertainty after the British public voted to leave the European Union, July was a strong month for shares with solid gains around the world's major markets.
With the 2016 financial year just behind us, this month’s update focuses on the investment performance over the past 12 months. What worked and what didn’t?
May marked a third consecutive month of solid returns for Australian shares, delivering more than 3% for the month. The local market was boosted by the RBA's move back into rate-cut mode, driving Australian bond yields down to all-time lows.
After the carnage that characterised global share markets in the first two months of the year, March saw solid recovery as most major markets bounced back strongly. This confidence boost is in part because of news that China’s economy has stabilised in the short term, and senior officials from the US Federal Reserve assuring investors that interest rates will remain lower for longer.
January’s market woes continued in the early weeks of February as most markets reached fresh lows. While global markets stabilised and rebounded from around mid-month, this wasn’t enough to offset the earlier falls, leaving most markets down over the month.
The first seven weeks of 2016 have been nothing short of horrible for investors. At the time of writing the Australian share market is down over 10% for the calendar year but isn’t alone, with shares down more than 9% in the US, 17% in Japan and more than 20% in China.
After finishing broadly flat over 2015, global share markets have had quite a shock in the opening two weeks of 2016, with most major markets down around 6%.
