Global Market Review: November 2014

BY David Bassanese | 8 December 2014

The major development over the month of November was the sharp drop in commodity prices which caused the A$ to fall and the local equity market to underperform globally. On the other hand, global equity markets rose strongly, reflecting the strength in the US economy and hopes that further central bank policy stimulus will help to foster growth in the more challenged economies of Japan, Europe and China. Lower commodity prices and accommodative policy helped bond yields fall further, supporting fixed income returns.
