The Lowdown on Markets to 28th July 2017

In this week’s issue:

 

  • The Trump inflation trade begins to lose momentum as geo-political risks heighten.
  • US technology and tobacco stocks retreat over the week on a backdrop of uncertainty.
  • The price of crude oil continues to climb on signs that the global glut might be easing.
  • An optimistic outlook for corporate earnings for 2017 keeps equity markets buoyant.
  • The dollar remains weak against other leading currencies helping to push gold higher.
  • Whilst equity markets are showing signs of fatigue they remain on an upward trajectory.
