In this week’s issue

  • Stock markets retreat on nervousness about China’s economy, crude oil and the US dollar.
  • In the rout the emerging markets and Asia suffer most on worries about “currency wars”.
  • Will China devalue the yuan for a second time and create further volatility in markets.
  • The VIX Index “the so called fear gauge” rises 46 per cent to its highest level since October.
  • Whilst the price of crude oil continues to fall the price of gold has its best week since January
  • Whilst “cash remains king” how long will it be before the shrewd bargain hunters return?

What does this mean for the markets and asset classes?
