** Investing in 2018: What are the risks and opportunities? ** 

We have been in a 9 year bull run for global equities with many hitting all time highs in January this year, especially in the US. However, February has been a torrid month with most equity markets down 10% or more in what is usually described as a "correction". But it hasn't only been equities, bonds also have had a sell off in response to rising global inflation which arguably has been the catalyst for the rout in equities.

In total we have seen trillions of dollars in value wiped off the value of equity and bond markets in less than 10 days. Even cryptocurrencies considered the new digital gold has seen its value plummet by at least 60%. While UK property has been in the doldrums since Brexit. Given this background, what are the risks and opportunities in this environment.

  • The US stock market in unarguably expensive, but does that mean it should crash? Are other markets such as Europe and Emerging Markets better opportunities?
  • Since China's growth rate slowed down in 2012 commodities have been in a bear market while equities have been in a bull market, and only in the last 12 months have we seen an upswing. Are commodities now the better choice?
  • By merely referencing recent UK GDP figures, Brexit has been less bad than feared, but UK assets particularly property hasn't followed. Is this an opportunity?
  • Now that we have had the crash many had warned of in cryptocurrencies is now the time to be brave and wade in or are the risks of government regulation too great?
