The Top 3 Questions That Investors Are Asking Right Now

question mark

From SocGen’s UK economist Brian Hilliard come the top 3 questions that big clients are asking.

They are:

  • IS THE GROWTH MOMENTUM GENUINE? 
  • WHAT IS DRIVING THE HIGHER OIL PRICE AND HOW MUCH DAMAGE COULD IT INFLICT?
  • WHEN WILL THE GREEK PSI PROCESS BE CONCLUDED?

On the top one, Hilliard answers:

With real economy data in the US continuing to improve, more and more clients are discussing the possibility that the improvement could persist. MARKET ISSUES: The US equity market has risen in a straight line since the beginning of the year. It seems to have little doubt that the recent run of good data will solidify into a durable upturn. It is thus becoming increasingly sensitive to disappointment. As we discuss in our Economic News 24 February   the durable goods data could provide a reality check which might hurt the markets.
