A calendar of potential investment shocks on the horizon
We look at a calendar of events over the next 12 months that have the potential to shock financial markets.
The vote for Brexit and the victory of Donald Trump in the US election have been seen by some as an anti-establishment backlash and a vote against the economic status quo. Like Brexit, the implications of Donald Trump’s presidency remain unclear. The market’s response to both events has been to fluctuate wildly. While investing for such oneoff events is risky – it is like betting on the toss of a coin – investors still need to be aware of the events over the next 12 months that could shake the market. Here we take a look what those events might be and explain why they might increase volatility in financial markets.
