Description

Weak economic data combined with geo-political tensions and concerns about an Ebola crisis sent markets in a spin for the first few days of last week.

After investors were spooked, market sentiment stabilised somewhat on Thursday and Friday, partly driven by some positive economic data on US housing and consumer confidence that was stronger than expected.
