Markets need to deal with an inflation hangover

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
