  • Financial markets remain spirited after a week of disappointments and geo-political risks
  • A disappointing August US jobs number could threaten any further US rate hike in 2017
  • The recent rise in the euro will surely be on the ECB’s agenda at their meeting this week
  • Political turmoil concerning the US debt ceiling could trigger a debt crisis but it’s unlikely
  • The months of September and October can be tricky for investors given their history
