December in review

December failed to provide the Christmas rally many investors were hoping for as major global equity markets made significant losses over the month. As has been the case for much of the preceding year, the usual themes of trade wars and the US Federal Reserve Bank increasing interest rates played a significant role in the continued sell-off. The S&P 500, FTSE 100 and Nikkei 225 ended the month down 9.0%, 3.5% and 10.3% respectively. In the UK, progress with regards to Brexit was minimal with political tussles at the forefront as the government was found in contempt of Parliament, and Theresa May survived a vote of no confidence. Pound sterling reflected the Brexit stalemate as it dropped 1.2% against the euro. Oil prices continued to decline, with Brent Crude oil down 9.5% over the month as increasing supply and a weaker global outlook continued to weigh on the market. In fixed income, yields on US and UK 10-year bonds decreased 30 and 9 basis points respectively as investors migrated towards safe haven assets.
