Mercer Monthly Market Summary

Rebound of Oil and Pressure on the Dollar Impact Company Fundamentals

Mercer's Monthly Market summary provides an overview of global financial markets. 

April 2016

After reaching 2016 highs in mid-April, equity markets closed the month with modest gains.  The rebound of oil and a weaker US dollar contributed to improving sentiment. However, the news wasn’t all good: with the IMF trimming its global growth expectations, disappointing earnings and revenue growth in the technology sector, renewed concerns over Greece as the IMF is considering a revisit of the bailout agreement, and the earthquakes in the southern islands of Japan.
