Market outlook – Themes for 2019
2018 provided a bumpy ride for the markets; however, a number of issues found closure, such as NAFTA, or eased such as the threat from North Korea.
On the other hand, a possible global economic slowdown with main contributors being China and the Eurozone casts its shadow over the markets and could have a significant effect for commodity currencies as well as the common currency of the Eurozone.
Wider implications could occur, such a possible negative spillover effect on the US economy, however, the materialization of such a scenario, is still to be seen.
China remains the big question mark for the markets also on a second front.
As the US president seems determined to get positive results for the US from a possible deal, the Chinese dig in for a fight and we could see trade frictions between the two economies linger on.
Should a deal be struck, we could see the risk on a sentiment of the markets, getting a boost though, as a significant uncertainty would be removed.
Political events such as the elections for the European parliament could trigger further instability for the Euro area and deepen the economic slowdown of the zone.
In addition, the Euro area could be affected by the Brexit issue; however, the primary victim or beneficiary, depending on the outcome would be the UK economy, with the pound’s direction describing the plus and cons of the result.
