Liz Truss’s resignation will not calm markets premium
Liz Truss stepping down from her role as PM after just 45 days will only heighten financial markets’ fears as political chaos in the UK worsens. We’ve seen over the past few weeks how unforgiving the markets are when the Pound plummeted to all-time lows against the Dollar, gilt yields rose, and stocks markets dipped due to irresponsible economic policies set out by the Truss government. Yet despite Truss’s resignation today, I don’t think this will signal an end to the Read More

U.S. China deal is a massive investor wake-up call premium
Trade relations between the United States and China have just been given a considerable boost following last week’s agreement between the two nations which allows U.S. regulators to inspect the audits of Chinese firms whose stocks are traded on U.S. exchanges. In a lengthy dispute, U.S. regulators had pledged to eliminate Chinese companies from U.S.-based stock exchanges if China doesn’t permit inspections. To my mind, this tentative agreement is certainly positive news. Read More

Bloomberg’s crypto policy places him on the right side of history premium
Michael Bloomberg’s cryptocurrency plans are putting him on the right side of history. The presidential candidate has put forward a regulatory framework for cryptocurrencies within a new financial regulation plan which states: “Cryptocurrencies have become an asset class worth hundreds of billions of dollars, yet regulatory oversight remains fragmented and undeveloped.” Up to now, Bloomberg is the only presidential hopeful to have formulated a coherent Read More

Coronavirus drives Bitcoin price higher premium
It’s likely that we’ll see the price of Bitcoin continue to increase until the coronavirus reaches a peak. The price of the world’s largest cryptocurrency by market cap gained over 10 per cent in a week and is also up 30 per cent since the end of last year. This makes 2020 the best start to year for Bitcoin in eight years. Up to now, there have been 17,335 confirmed cases of the coronavirus with a death toll of 362. The epicentre of the virus outbreak is still mainland Read More

Pound jumps as Farage-Johnson pact lowers risk of hung parliament premium
Sterling is set to receive a welcome boost after the Brexit Party said it will not come up against the Conservatives in 317 seats in the December election. Brexit party leader Nigel Farage has announced he will stand aside in all the 317 seats won by the Tories in the 2017 general election, and will only fight seats held by other parties on December 12.

Trump’s re-election in 2020: good news for China’s economic agenda? premium
Is the end in sight to the U.S.-China trade dispute? I ask the question tentatively, but China did spark hopes that a deal may be reached after agreeing with Washington to cut back on certain tariffs. There has been an ongoing argument relating to the trade war, with some saying China was hanging on, focusing on the long game and waiting for Donald Trump to leave office before dealing with another administration. However, whilst this view may have held up Read More

Two key reasons investors must now election-proof their finances premium
A UK general election looks on the cards, in essence a second Brexit referendum, so it’s imperative that investors in the UK and internationally take action now to ‘election-proof’ their finances. Following the Prime Minister pausing his Brexit bill on Tuesday, after MPs rebuffed his timetable to pass through the House of Commons in three days, the EU’s decision on whether to grant a further Brexit extension is due on Friday. If this is the case, the Read More

Bercow’s Meaningful Vote refusal won’t impact Sterling, but it does heighten uncertainty premium
Although Sterling remained largely unmoved, John Bercow’s refusal on Monday to allow a Meaningful Vote on the new Brexit deal will place further downward pressure on the UK economy. Sterling experienced a minor downside knock following the decision by the Speaker of the House of Commons, but there was no big surprise. This highlights that traders are patiently biding their time as they forecast the European Union will allow a Brexit extension in the coming Read More
