2017 Q4 Outlook
A TWIN-TRACK WORLD OF CALM MARKETS AND VOLATILE POLITICS
For politics, economies and markets these are exceptional times. While politics are volatile, the global economy is recovering and financial markets are buoyant. As central banks keep rates at record lows, being careful not to jeopardise the global recovery, abundant financial liquidity is supporting markets. In the United States, markets are unperturbed by political controversy. It has been a long time since someone as senior as the former head of the FBI performed a special investigation. Whether what he uncovers will stoke market volatility remains to be seen.
