Who said August was boring? We start with an update on Brexit where a deal doesn’t seem so likely and continue with escalating trade wars and what it means for financial markets.

  1. Brexit blues: There is growing talk of a no deal Brexit. Falling off a cliff could hurt the economy. We argue about what response the Bank of England could provide to such a scenario, the other scenarios and the potential movements for the British Pound.
  2. Trade wars: New tariffs are introduced but the US economy is doing great so stock markets are also doing great. What does it mean moving forward? Can this continue forever? We discuss the current state of affairs, look at China’s reactions, discuss the Fed, and basically everything you need to know about trade and the markets.
