October 2021 in Figures

November 1, 2021

Equities rebounded in October. The dollar was mixed and down marginally on balance. The price of gold rose only slightly, but that of oil appreciated over 10%, aggravating the elevation of general inflation. Long-term interest rate climbed as investors anticipate that central bankers will begin to raise policy rates sooner than forward guidance suggests.
