The markets

 Markets 20 Nov 15

The local market rebounded strongly from last week’s weakness, rallying nearly 4% for the week, despite concerns following the Paris terrorist attacks and ongoing weakness in commodity prices. 

The US market also rose strongly, nearly 2% for the week, as investors were buoyed by the release of the minutes from the US Federal Reserve meeting, which although pointed to an interest rate rise in December, also highlighted that any further rises would be on a slow and flat trajectory.
