We recorded a special Covid-19 Podcast yesterday to keep all of our listeners updated with some of the latest news, as we attempt to navigate the rapidly changing financial and property market landscape.  In this special episode   Cate, Peter and Dave take you through:  1. A detailed update on the status of the financial markets as they are lead indicators for what is ahead and help us to look beyond the near-term. In the last few days, we have seen a significant share market rebound off the back of the US $2trillion (USD) stimulus package, including the single largest day jump in history in the US.  2. A historical stock market comparison. We provide perspective as to how well the market is holding up, in comparison to other key periods in history.   3. How the Shanghai stock exchange has fallen and recovered.  4. Information about the government stimulus package.  5. The support being provided to SME’s, the temporarily unemployed and vulnerable consumers.   6. The vital role the banks are playing, with great assistance from the RBA, including reducing interest rates and buying up bonds to keep rates low.  7. How YOU can build your own bridge of liquidity through to the other side.    8. Real-life examples of the impact on landlords and renters.   9. And of course, our ‘gold nuggets’ to get you through this period.

On Monday afternoon I attended a very impressive presentation by Chris Joye of Coolabah Capital which left me feeling positive about the path forward. Chris is one of the key advisers to the Prime Minister.  He has also been making recommendations to the RBA about market failings well in advance of the ‘reality’ of the true impact of Covid-19 sinking in for the Australian government, society and other countries now in the thick of dealing with the pandemic.  Below I will share with you some of the insights gleaned including his response to three of my questions, his predictions, some of which came true overnight, and the paper he and his team released yesterday morning.
