Economic and market update

11 October 2016

In the latest update, Bob Cunneen, Senior Economist reviews events in markets during September.

He discusses:

  • how European shares edged lower due to the concerns over the health of Europe's banking system
  • the timing for higher US interest rates being a key issue driving global markets
  • the mild gain achieved by Australian shares, and
  • how the Australian Resources sector was supported by higher coal and oil prices.
