Markets take a beating except Japan

Risk Mid

Global markets took another beating last week as almost all countries' stock markets and sectors declined. The only market that was not down was Japan, while most other markets fell 2 percent or more with the UK, Germany, Sweden, and Portugal losing more than 3 percent in the week. On the sector side, metals and mining were the big losers, declining more than 4 percent each.

Country performance

 Disappointing Q3 earnings were partly to blame for the bad performance, along with concern about the looming US fiscal cliff issue dominating the market in the weeks to come.  Talks between Democrats and Republicans regarding a new budget and the fiscal cliff seem to be progressing which will most likely remove some of the concern in the market this week. In addition, better than expected US GDP growth of 2.9 percent could provide more support for a small weekly rebound.

Sector performance

The poor Q3 earnings season is coming to an end with only a few big names left. including Lowes Company, beleaguered HP, and Deere & Co.
