Check out our new Market Outlook: 20/20 Vision.
It’s that time of the year again: when intelligent and experienced investors and economists – and the ext. team – predict what’s going to happen over the next 12 months.
This coming year is a tough one to predict. The health of financial markets and economies around the world will likely be severely impacted by political uncertainty in North America and abroad.
Trade tensions that never seem to end, the unexpected rise of populism in the West, ongoing mixed messages from equity and bond markets, and the upcoming U.S. election in November – these are the issues that send jitters up the spine of even the most stoic investors globally.
What’s our conclusion? Markets this year will be driven more by politics than fundamentals.
