- Questions you should ask yourself: Are you ready for extreme events? They come more often than you think and perhaps we have a cluster of these right now. Diversifying is one option.
- State of the UK: Britain was seen as raising rates soon. Has it totally changed? we examine the positives and the negative of the UK economy, rate hike prospects and what could drive sterling.
- Oil prices: The price of black gold is crashing and it is considered as a sign of a global downturn. But this is only the tip of the iceberg in this complex story. Prices depend on supply, politics and demand.
- Global gloom: Volatility is alive and kicking with big falls in stock markets, wild moves in bonds and excellent two way action in currencies. Is it all Europe’s fault? Not exactly. We review the various factors in the global economy which are pulling in different directions.
