Market Update

Market Update – June 2020

This month:

  • Key economies have so far avoided a resurgence in COVID‐19 cases, but the World Health Organisation warned it continues to
    spread rapidly in some regions.
  • Liquidity conditions remain favourable as central banks and governments continue to prop up economies via monetary and fiscal easing measures.
  • Key indicators such as unemployment and PMIs improved in May, adding to the market’s hopes of a strong rebound, although the risk of further outbreaks remains.
  • The Reserve Bank of Australia kept rates on hold at 0.25% at its June meeting and hit pause on bond purchases through May as
    markets recovered.
  • Black Lives Matter protests in Australia may be used as a test case for considering whether large outdoor gatherings are safe to resume.
