Article preview: In our latest monthly investment update for September 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 August at 7,207.18 points, falling during the month. The index fell by 379.60 points or 5% during August, nearly reversing two consecutive months of gains. The fall came despite a slide in the value of Pound Sterling, which is generally positive for larger companies listed on the London Stock Exchange, which generate a high proportion of their revenues overseas. When Pound Sterling falls in value, overseas earnings become more profitable for UK listed companies. European stocks finished August around one-month highs, ending up on a positive note following a willingness by the US and Chinese governments to resume their trade talks in September.
