In this edition of our Quarterly Market Review we provide data and analysis across markets and investments.
We also share an article that discusses the impact that the Coronavirus pandemic has had on the stock markets as well as the global economy.
"Market declines can occur when investors are forced to reassess expectations for the future. The expansion of the outbreak is causing worry among governments, companies, and individuals about the impact on the global economy. Apple announced earlier this month that it expected revenue to take a hit from problems making and selling products in China. Australia's prime minister has said the virus will likely become a global pandemic, and other officials there warned of a serious blow to the country's economy. Airlines are preparing for the toll it will take on travel. And these are just a few examples of how the impact of the coronavirus is being assessed."
