October in Figures
November 1, 2015
In several countries during October, equities recorded the sharpest monthly gains in four years. Bond yields fell in Japan, Germany and the United States but rose in Britain. Short-term interest rates fell in the eurozone but were unchanged elsewhere. Crude oil and gold advanced about 5%. Naturally the dollar fell against commodity-sensitive currencies. But the greenback also fell against sterling while posting gains against the euro, yen, and Swiss franc.
