Within Australian and Global financial markets August 2011 was one of the most fascinating months over the last few years .

We’d all remember reading headlines like:

  • ‘Don’t panic’: Economists urge calm after bloodbath
  • CBA Profit & Market continues surge higher
  • Shares down at noon on investor fears
  • Downturn fears wipe off $44bn
  • Industry poised for huge job cuts

iGo2 examined these conversations through the month with particular reference to the Big 4 Australian Banks (Westpac, NAB, CBA, and ANZ). We also looked at the conversations as they associated to China, Resources, Outlook, and the Reserve Bank.
