122. Market Wrap

Welcome back to another episode of the 360 Money Matters Podcast! We are back again with our monthly ‘Market Wrap’ segment.

In this episode, we discuss the US market reaching all-time highs and a strong GDP growth of 3.3%, along with the potential interest rate cuts in the US and Australia. We also talk about Australia’s controversial stage three tax cuts. We discuss the importance of consistent governance and the potential impact on trust in political promises. In China, economic worries lead to a $278 billion support package for the stock market, while the Evergrande Building Company faces liquidation, which impacts the economy. 

Furthermore, we mention the Australian market, represented by the ASX that was relatively flat in January, down 0.54%, but shows signs of overall health.

The government’s reconsideration of promised legislative changes sparks criticism, with concerns about the impact on financial planning and the challenges of navigating a changing tax landscape. We believe in the importance of consistent governance and the potential impact on trust in political promises.

Join us as we explore market wrap, offering a deeper understanding of economic forces. Don’t miss this insightful analysis and the reminder to stay informed in the ever-changing financial landscape!
