Market Essentials Report – March 2017

Posted on December 15, 2018

The topic that has had the market talking in February is the OECD’s warning that there is a near-20% risk of Australia entering a recession. They said the biggest risk is a housing “rout” that is non-negligible.

Foreign investment in Australia has been one of the biggest topics of 2016, and it seems to be ending with as much debate as it started with research from Treasury showing the impact of foreign buyers in Sydney and Melbourne on property prices is only about $80 million to $122 million per quarter.

The last financial year broke many records in Australia, including for the most homes built in 12 months. The housing industry Association’s chief economist Harley Dale has warned of an “unprecedented degree of uncertainty regarding the timing and magnitude of the down cycle”. This should be on every investor’s radar.

Warnings have also come form United States-based doomsday theorists who were back with a vengeance in September. Washington-based International Strategic Studies Association claimed Australia was 6 weeks from a housing collapse. That was 2 weeks ago.
