Global Markets Overview is published and updated every month. This includes what has happened in markets, our macroeconomic outlook and price updates on assets such as government bonds, credit and equities.

In this Global Markets Overview:

We explore major markets at a glance and asset market pricing:
  • Bond yields in key markets continued to trend higher during much of October but have since reversed significantly.
  • The US saw a flurry of positive economic growth surprises towards the start of September that has since been partially mitigated by weaker data. In addition, the US Treasury announced that it would be issuing less debt at longer maturities.
  • Global equities continued to fall over October, with the S&P 500 touching a bull market correction – defined as a 10% price fall from the peak in July.
  • However, equities have bounced sharply in the first week of November as bond yields fell.
