133. 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 latest trends in global investment markets. We examine the S&P 500’s decline of 2.47% and its connection to inflation, which came in at 0.4%, while addressing the shifts in interest rate expectations and potential recession signals such as the Mel and SAHM rules. 

In Australia, the ASX 200 saw a minor decline of 0.79%, mirroring the US market, while rising inflation is outpacing income growth. There is also an increase in metals and mining, and precious metals prices, particularly gold, as a hedge against market volatility.

It is important to level-headedness during economic uncertainty and preparing for potential recessions. So seek financial advice to navigate the current climate in this episode. Join us now!
