Third Quarter 2022 in Figures

September 30, 2022

3Q 2022 was a stellar quarter for the dollar but a terrible time for equities and sovereign debt values. Almost all central banks are now on the interest rate hike bandwagon, with the Bank of Japan being the most notable exception. While oil prices lost about a quarter of their value in the period and many other commodity prices fell sharply too, Bitcoin reversed a small portion of the huge price drop sustained in the prior calendar quarter.
