US FED WEIGHS ON MARKETS

Recent History The last few months has seen some sharp swings in sentiment that has contributed to significant movements in investment markets. Late June 2016 saw a sharp pullback in equity markets as they focused on the negative effects of the Brexit vote. However calm had returned by July with most markets rallying strongly as concerns over Brexit largely dissipated.

The Australian market was one of the best performing developed markets in July with Australian equities (ASX 200) rising by 6.3%. Equity markets struggled in August as market expectations increased that the US Federal Reserve (Fed) would raise rates again before the end of 2016. These worries have persisted in September with equities pulling back and bond yields rising off historical lows. The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) cut the official cash rate from 1.75% to 1.50% in August, a new all-time low on lowered inflation expectations.
