European equities join the risk-on rally11 Nov 2019
European equities also rose last week bolstered by US equity markets and an improvement in third quarter earnings. The Stoxx 600 Index rose for the fifth week in a row. Among 80% of the constituents that have reported on the Stoxx 600 Index, 50% have surpassed consensus estimates both on top line revenue growth and bottom line earnings growth. This is the highest percentage in the last 6 quarters.
Haven commodities lose steam11 Nov 2019
Gold hit a three-month low last week at $1464/oz on the back of a broader risk-on sentiment in the markets. Flows out of gold funds primarily drove the price down even though speculative positioning in the precious metal remains elevated. Silver, on account of its strong correlation with gold, had a similar trajectory and traded around $17/oz- just slightly above its three-month low.
US stocks rally further11 Nov 2019
US equity market indices including the Dow Jones, the S&P 500 Index and the Nasdaq all posted record highs last week. Optimism surrounding the completion of the first phase of the US-China trade deal, the pickup in long term US Treasury yields and better than expected earnings release for the third quarter provided a tailwind to US equity markets.

Short & Leveraged Exchange-Traded Products are only intended for investors who understand the risks involved in investing in a product with short and/or leveraged exposure and who intend to invest on a short-term basis. Any investment in short and/or leveraged products should be monitored on a regular basis (as frequently as daily) to ensure consistency with your investment strategy. You should understand that investments in short and/or leveraged exchange-traded products held for a period of longer than one day may not provide returns equivalent to the return from the relevant unleveraged investment multiplied by the relevant leverage factor. Potential losses in short and/or leveraged exchange-traded products may be magnified in comparison to investments that do not incorporate these strategies. Please refer to the section entitled “Risk Factors” in the relevant prospectus for further details of these and other risks associated with an investment in short and/or leveraged exchange-traded products. You should consult an independent investment adviser prior to making an investment in short and/or leveraged exchange-traded products in order to determine suitability to your circumstances.
