Monthly markets review - November 2017

A look back on markets in November when US equities led the advance.


Investment Communications Team

  • Global equities gained in November in US dollar terms. Regional disparity was higher than in recent months with US stocks advancing while European stocks retreated.
  • US equities gained, supported by investor optimism that proposed tax reforms would improve corporate profitability.
  • Eurozone equities retreated amid some profit-taking and currency strength. Some political uncertainty remained as talks over the formation of a new coalition government in Germany collapsed.
  • The UK stockmarket saw negative returns as large caps and overseas-focused parts of the market performed poorly amid sterling strength as optimism rose over Brexit talks.
  • In Japan, the TOPIX advanced amid a solid corporate earnings season with the majority of companies again exceeding expectations.
  • Emerging market equities posted a marginally positive return. Growing expectations for US tax reform and the potential implications for global liquidity tightening both weighed on sentiment.
  • Government bond yield curves saw a degree of flattening. Ten-year yields did little, but five and two-year yields moved higher, particularly on US Treasuries. This reflected some progress toward tax reform.
