September 2017 - ADIFO Global Market Review

by Kevin Burrows

Global stock markets were mostly positive in September, with modest losses in emerging markets and UK equities. Bonds fell almost across the board, with only high yield and mortgage-backed bonds bucking the trend. Commodities were divided for the month in a reversal of August’s performance and the US dollar rebounded from recent losses, gaining against most major currencies except the British pound.
