Greenwich Wealth Investment Update – March 2019

Markets continue to rebound despite economies showing more and more signs of weakness. In this month’s investment update from Greenwich Wealth, we take a deeper look into the Australian economy as talk of recession starts to creep in.

As the rebound continues, the S&P/ASX 200 is now within 5% of last year’s high, though the rally has slowed a little. The US S&P 500 also moved up about 1.5% over the past four weeks while the Euro STOXX outperformed, up 3.8% in the same period.

Bonds were mostly flat for the month as the US 10-year yield held steady, though European and Australian bond yields fell on weak economic data and a stimulus package from the European Central Bank (ECB) was announced.

Commodities stabilised following the rebound over the past couple of months as global economic data showed a significant slowdown in recent months.

The Australian Dollar fell to about US 70.5 cents as worries over Australia’s economy surfaced.
