Investment markets and key developments over the past week
Shares had a mixed week with mostly good economic data, but increasing nervousness regarding Greece and worries about a Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) outbreak in Korea weighing on some Asian markets. While US shares (+0.1%), Australian shares (+0.8%) and Chinese shares (+2.9%) rose, European shares (-0.2%) fell slightly as did Japanese shares and some other Asian markets. Bond yields mostly fell late in the week. Despite stronger US economic data, the US dollar fell slightly and this helped some commodities and the Australian dollar. (VIEW LINK)
