Business and Market Discussion / View from Australia

2020-01-24
Global Stock markets have fallen sharply as concerns grow over the spread of China's deadly flu-like virus. Hong Kong and mainland shares were the hardest hit. China's Shanghai Composite fell by the most in eight months and the Hang Seng in Hong Kong tumbled below 28,000. However, US shares have recovered after the World Health Organisation tried to calm fears over the deadly coronavirus.

The European Central Bank has left interest rates in the eurozone unchanged and launched a strategic review into its monetary policy, after once again failing to reach its inflation target of 2%.

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has told teenage environmentalist Greta Thunberg to go away and study economics before lecturing investors. He said her call for investors to divest fossil fuels showed a lack of understanding about the economy and jobs.

On today’s Money Talk we’re joined by Gavin Parry of Parry International Trading and Tariq Dennison at GFM Asset Management. On the phone from Sydney with the view from Australia is Toby Lawson of Societe Generale.
