  • 1. BT Monthly Markets Chart Pack – November 2009 An overview of movements in global financial markets
  • 2. Global share markets were mixed in November... <ul><li>Global share markets were a mixture of the good and the bad in November, with strong performances in the US (+5.7%) and the UK (+2.9%) countered by losses in Europe (-1.0%) and Japan (-6.9%). </li></ul><ul><li>The Australian share market largely reversed last month’s fall, with the S&amp;P/ASX 200 Accumulation Index closing 1.8% higher after AMP made a bid for AXA Asia Pacific, the Australian unit of France’s biggest insurer. Any corporate activity in the current economic environment is viewed favourably by the market and the news was even enough to overshadow a surprise drop in September’s retail trade numbers. </li></ul>

It was the first time ever that the Bank has raised the official cash rate three times in a row. The RBA doesn’t meet in January but the market is already bracing itself for further rate hikes in February and March next year. </li></ul><ul><li>The Westpac/Melbourne Institute’s consumer sentiment survey eased 2.5% in November – its first monthly decline since May this year. </li></ul><ul><li>National Australia Bank’s business conditions survey jumped to a 22-month high in October as local businesses gained confidence in the recovery. </li></ul><ul><li>The Australian economy gained a further 24,500 jobs in October, well above the market consensus of a loss of 10,000 jobs. </li></ul>Source: BT Financial Group
  • 6. The Australian dollar continues to move higher against the US dollar <ul><li>The Australian dollar was again higher against its US counterpart in November, gaining a further 1.8% on expectations that the Reserve Bank will continue to raise interest rates over the coming months. The local currency hit a high of US$0.9405 cents mid-month before eventually closing at US$0.9149 cents. </li></ul><ul><li>The A$ is now up 52% against the US$ since hitting a low of US$0.6012 cents in October last year and looks set to test the US$0.95 cent mark within the next couple of months. </li></ul><ul><li>At the end of November: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A$1 bought US$0.9149 +1.8% </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>€ 0.6098 -0.3% </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>¥78.95 -2.5% </li></ul></ul>Source: BT Financial Group
