In the latest update, Brian reviews events in markets during July.

He discusses:

· why economic news from the US and recent data from China are positive, but Europe’s recovery remains very fragile
· whether Australia’s exports and non-mining economy can offset the decline in mining investment
· how MLC’s multi-asset portfolios are positioned.
