Steep Rise in Risk Assets

The Fed are tightening policy and QE programmes are being either curtailed or reduced elsewhere. Those without a plan are exposed to a potentially very nasty hangover from the third boom in less than two decades, and one that has driven valuations to levels comparable in some respects to the greatest peak ever seen in 2000 and above those seen in 2007 and 1929...

Peering Past the Election

To the relief of many, the US election should be over by this time next week. Not only will the US have a new President, but we will know who controls Congress and the Senate. Clearly markets have been ruffled by the Trump resurgence post the FBI investigation news from a week or so ago. As with the Brexit experience, life will settle down whoever wins and we now need to think about what the next few months will bring...
