Generally speaking, global stock markets have been moving lower since spring 2022, with a reprieve in mid-August when they almost got back to the highs last seen in early April. For most of the year, markets have been ranging (moving sideways). This was the case until the end of September when, successive interest rate rises around the world and the UK’s Mini Budget saw the FTSE 100 go back to levels last seen in April 2021.

Fortunately, there has been a small recovery in UK markets since the low on 28 September 2022, however, when there is such a lot going on in the global economy, it’s really helpful to have a deeper understanding of what has been happening and why. We are sure that reading this issue of ‘Money Minder’s Market Insights’ will help you to gain a more complete view the current situation. 

There is a lot of valuable information to digest in this article, so we recommend having a cuppa close by to enjoy whilst you are reading it.
