Market Bulletin 29th April 2010

This week’s Bulletin which contains the following points: Greece’s economic woes moved once more centre stage but this time with an air of finality ? its premier, George Papandreou, was forced to ask for emergency EU and IMF aid to stave off collapse. Although reassured, global financial markets were underwhelmed with investors keeping a wary eye for other potential sovereign defaults. More positively corporate and economic news from the US was better-than-expected enabling Wall Street to move ahead decisively, much to the cheer of investors. Here in the UK the flow of economic news was less positive ? the ONS said growth shrank to 0.2% in the first quarter of the year and inflation rose more than expected. A hung parliament seems to be priced into the market and should there be a decisive outcome then global investors appear indifferent as to whether it is a Labour or Conservative government. Global Emerging Market fund manager Jonathan Asante explains why he is wary of the BRIC economies and opting to look further afield to invest.
