Article preview: In our latest monthly investment update for August 2019, we take a look at how the global investment markets, economy and commodities are performing. The FTSE 100 index of leading UK company shares closed at the end of July at 7,586.78, rising again during the month. The index rose by 161.15 points or 2.17% during the month; the second consecutive month of growth for the index. Leading UK company shares slipped back from their 11-month high on the final day of trading in July, experiencing its most significant one-day fall in two months. This sharp daily fall was partly due to poor results in financial and retail sectors, as well as export-led companies due to Pound Sterling recovering from a 28-month low.
