How do you invest in Australian shares?
With the country in turmoil and the outlook for the Australian economy bleak, it’s worth considering what the future holds for shares.
Read more: The biggest threat to Australian stockmarkets is likely to come from a new political administration in the US, with the possibility of a Trump presidency and the possibility that Donald Trump could win the White House.
The markets are already seeing the effects of Trump’s policies on the stock market, with many stocks in the United States experiencing price drops and falling profits.
In Australia, it is unlikely that the market will see a big fall in prices, but there are signs that investors are beginning to question the strength of the Australian stock market.
“It’s a concern because the market is not performing as well as the markets in Europe and Asia,” says Ian Smith, a portfolio manager at Wealth Market Advisors.
Smith is also concerned about the economic prospects for the country.
With the US economy struggling to find the footing that was needed to get the unemployment rate down, there is a real risk that a lot of jobs will not be created.
There are also concerns about the stability of the government.
Trump has promised to cut taxes on corporations and the wealthy, which is a move that would have a big impact on the Australian dollar.
A Trump presidency would also mean that the Australian government would be able to tap into the capital markets.
And with many people thinking that the economy is going to be so weak that it is going too slow, it will be difficult for the government to borrow money to fund spending, and to stimulate the economy.
It will also be harder to cut government spending, with Treasurer Scott Morrison having already hinted that he may be looking to take on a more direct role in the economy and cutting government spending.
Australian banks have also been facing pressure from the Trump administration.
Many of Australia’s banks are in debt, which could result in a large run-up in interest rates, with some analysts predicting that interest rates could rise by as much as 1,100 basis points.
If this happens, the Australian market could become a big loser, with a large drop in the Australian currency.
So far, there has been no suggestion that the Trump presidency is impacting the Australian sharemarket.
According to the S&P/ASX 200 index, the US stock market rose 2.3% in the first quarter of 2017, with shares up 4.1% year on year.
However, the index only measures the performance of the S &S 100, which has an average daily turnover of about $1 billion, and the S 500, which trades at $1,000.
That is the main reason why investors are wary of the stockmarket, with Australian stocks falling for a second consecutive quarter.
