Market Performance and Newsflow – December 2016

Global equity markets have recovered from the lows of early February which were associated with concerns over Chinese growth and are now up mid-single digits in local currency terms year to date. More recently, equity markets at the headline level have generally reacted positively to the election of Donal Trump as US President and shown modest gains since the election although within equity markets there has been more significant rotation between sectors with cyclical related stocks outperforming on hopes of improved growth at the expense of more defensive areas of the market.
