October in Figures

November 1, 2016

The dollar rose in October especially versus sterling. Long-term interest rates increased everywhere, not just in the U.S. where monetary policy tightening is expected. The 10-year JGB remained below its target of zero, however. Short-term interest rates edged up marginally. Equities in October were mixed, and both the price of gold and oil slipped about 3%.
