07 Oct 2019
In our regular market round-up, we take a look at what's happened in Q3 2019.
Despite volatility in the face of ongoing trade disputes and softening economic data, global equity markets ended the quarter marginally higher, while sovereign bond yields continued to drift lower.
Some of the changes in Q3 2019 include:
- The ongoing trade war between the US and China, and its disruption to external demand and global supply chains, continue
to impact global growth.
- UK GDP growth is expected to achieve a modest recovery in
Q3, however forecasts have slumped.
- While the US economy has continued to outperform its
developed market peers, its manufacturing PMI fell to its
lowest level since June 2009 in September.
- Inflation pressures remain elusive despite real wage growth
on the back of low unemployment.
