    Do you have a comment on the Australian economic outlook or do you primarily focus on the USA?

      Hi Natalie,
      This report tends to focus on financial markets, rather than the economy per se. And global markets tend to be a big focus as these largely drive our own market. That said, if you are interested in a regular economic update, I do a quarterly webinar on this topic. Our latest economic webinar is available here.
