January 2019 Review - Share markets bounce back strongly

A strong recovery on global equity markets over January saw approximately half of the December quarter decline reversed. Highlights for the month were as follows:

  • A significant bounce back occurred across all major world share markets.
  • Bond yields continued to drift lower as the U.S. Federal Reserve appeared to soften its stance.
  • Lower bond yields resulted in significant gains on listed property and infrastructure markets.
  • Commodity prices strengthened as the oil price slide reversed and iron ore jumped suddenly.
