Read about global markets and trends in the July edition of Investment Outlook

Published on 05 Jul 20221 minute read

This monthly commentary gives a roundup of global markets and trends.

In this edition:

  • Financial markets are digesting the end of government and central bank stimulus packages
  • The US S&P 500 index has entered a bear market, dragged lower by sectors more sensitive to higher interest rates such as technology
  • Government bond prices have also declined sharply to reflect a sudden shift in outlook from the major central banks
  • Equities could recover from current levels, if inflation peaks soon and companies continue to deliver healthy earnings
