ThreeSixty Research Market Update – November 2018

Highlights:

  • US economic growth moderated in the September quarter but is underpinned by strong consumer spending growth.

  • The IMF recently downgraded its forecast for global economic growth, partly reflecting the US-China trade war.

  • In Australia, business conditions remain relatively robust while labour market conditions continue to show signs of underlying strength.

  • Chinese GDP grew by 6.5% year-on-year in the September quarter, below the expected 6.6% and down from the June quarter’s growth of 6.7%.

  • Incoming European data was weaker than expected but consistent with broad-based growth and growing inflation expectations.
