Market Update – October 2016

A flat week on the markets with most markets moving less than half a %. That is, except for our own market which surged 1.3% on the week (close on Wednesday), and an additional 1% on Thursday at the time of this writing.

The ANZ/Roy Morgan Consumer Confidence index was a contributor to this, with a rise in the index of 4.4%, the largest weekly gain in 11 months.

Furthermore, an estimate of family finances by the same group recorded the highest figures in 7 years.
