Read the latest thoughts from Trevor Greetham in our Investment Clock Strategy report ‘Premature recession fears'.
An upturn in volatility remains apparent as Wall Street experienced one of its worst December's since the Great Depression.
Recession fears continue to rise and markets are pricing in this eventuality, but current sentiment readings are extremely depressed, the oil price is down and China continues to add stimulus. Trevor notes that he is starting 2019 constructive on stocks. Brexit remains a source of great uncertainty, for which Trevor believes in hedging risk rather than predicting an outcome.
