Mercer Monthly Market Summary

Oil, Hawkish Fed Comments and a Strong Dollar Shaped Markets

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


May 2016

Markets generally moved sideways in May, although equities rallied during the last week of the month, closing out May with solid gains for developed markets. Surprisingly strong oil prices and somewhat easing concerns over a potential Brexit calmed markets. Greece, European finance ministers and the IMF agreed to another round of austerity and reform measures in exchange for $11.4 billion in aid packages, easing concerns over Eurozone stability.
