Markets: Initial Observations 11/8/2014
With the continued turmoil happening around the Globe, Being the Ukrainian and Middle East conficts, together with the added information of a near collapse of Banco Espirito Santo in Portugal, sends initial warning signals across my bough. In terms of Global Markets, caution should be exercised when choosing risk options.
Focusing locally, the Australian dollar ended the week lower, with the Unemployment rate rising to a 15 or so year high of 6.4 per cent. This now keeps the pressure on for another rate cut before year end.
Strong signals continue from the U.S and whilst the market digests local economics signals, should cap the Australian Dollar in the near term.
