World Markets at a Glance

 

In this week’s issue

 

  • This has clearly been a golden period for equity investing and this year is no exception.
  • But, the prolonged bull market has left bonds, equities and credit looking expensive.
  • Clearly, this bull market has been driven by liquidity and recently from the Trump trade.
  • Whilst a correction cannot be ruled out US tax cuts and deregulation is a strong tailwind.
  • Bitcoin rises to over US$11,000 as the frenzy for virtual currencies pick up momentum.
  • Bull markets don’t die of old age and the fundamentals remain positive longer-term.
