Australia’s share market largely tracked sideways during August. This month, we thought it would be interesting to look back over the last five years to see what the dominant share markets of the world have been. We also discuss how the real state of residential property markets is not likely to be visible until Covid restrictions start to lift in our two main markets.
Shares, property and interest rates. During the month of July two of these went up and one stayed low. Can you guess which is which? Read on to understand what is happening in each of these three key segments of the economy.
Happy new financial year! In this newsletter, we will focus exclusively on the share market, looking at it’s extraordinary performance over the last 12 months and then also seeing how a client could take prudent advantage of years like the one just gone – while also making sure they can act intelligently in a bad year, as well.
Welcome to our June newsletter. In this edition, we examine how home prices continue to rise and are expected to do so until at least 2023. Meanwhile, the ASX 200 has reached record levels during the month of May, and interest rates remain at an all-time low. These are breathless times for asset prices!
Welcome to our May newsletter. There will be a much awaited Budget presented next Tuesday evening, and so we will keep this newsletter relatively brief – there will be a lot to let you know about in coming weeks!
In recent months we have looked at rising residential property prices and wondered whether the rise is due to an excess of demand over (very low) supply. This month, we look at new data that tells us that supply is rising to meet demand – and prices are staying high.
Australia’s residential property market is really hotting up. Some analysts predict a 20% rise in prices over the 2021 and 2022 years. If February is anything to go by, this may well happen. Meanwhile, the share market tracked sideways during February. Read on to find out more.
Happy New Year! We hope the summer period has been treating you well and that 2021 has kicked off in the right direction for you. We start our year of monthly newsletters with an analysis of what happened in the residential property market in 2020 and a recap of events – some of them quite extraordinary – in world share markets in January 2021. Enjoy!
Welcome to the December newsletter, our last for the year. And what a year it has been! In this edition we take a deep dive into the performance of the Australian share market during 2020. In our first edition next year, we will look back on the impact of 2020 on residential property prices and ponder what 2021 might have in store.
Welcome to the November newsletter. This month we look at how Australian shares performed for the month of October, and also take a look at some really surprising news from the residential property markets. Oh, and there was this thing last month called the Budget. We have a good look at that, as well. Enjoy!
Welcome to the October newsletter. We are keeping things deliberately short and sweet this month, because next month’s newsletter promises to be a doozy! On the first Tuesday of October the Federal Government will hand down its Budget for the current financial year. The Budget was delayed due to the pandemic and we are extremely excited to see how the Commonwealth intends to address the economic impact of coronavirus. Watch this space and have a great month!
Happy spring! In this edition, we take a deep dive into the Australian share market, comparing it to the US and other global markets. We do this for one main reason: we are starting to see some separation opening up between the performance of shares on the US market and the performance of shares on the Australian market. This might actually be a very good thing.
