Investment Watch October 2018

Our latest edition of Investment Watch is now available for Morgans clients.

The world economy is still growing at around trend, which is a generally positive background for risk assets, but investment outcomes have become highly dependent on ongoing gains from US equities. In our view the most likely outlook is ongoing global expansion, though trade wars, monetary policy mistakes, wobbles in emerging markets and geopolitical shocks are all real risks to monitor.

We look at the very real risk of US interest rates above 4% and the outlook for the equity market this month.
