Should investors be worried?

Please click the link below to view Shane Oliver's views on the current state of investment markets. Key points raised are :

  • It's too early to be sure that last month's pullback in shares is over but we remain of the view that it was not the start of a deep bear market and that the trend in shares remains up.
  • Worries around US interest rates, trade wars, European politics etc are unlikely to be terminal
  • The US midterm election turned out pretty much as polls indicated.  Since 1946 US shares have rallied in the 12 months after all midterm elections.
