BORIS AND DONALD STIR UP STRONGER POLITICAL HEADWINDS This week much of the news has been dominated by two political scandals; the court ruling that Boris Johnson acted unlawfully by proroguing parliament, and the developing news that Donald Trump tried to pressure Ukraine into investigating a political rival by withholding military aid. While both could […]
KEY CENTRAL BANKS SEND DOVISH SIGNALS This week we saw more central bank action, as the world’s major monetary policy makers try to cope with a slowing global economy. In the US the Federal Reserve cut rates by a quarter per cent, following the lead set by the European Central bank last week. The move […]
DRAGHI URGES EUROPEAN GOVERNMENTS TO INCREASE PUBLIC SPENDING This week while the UK might be paralysed over Europe, the same can’t be said for the European Central Bank, which announced a major change in policy in its attempt to stave off a recession within the Eurozone. The actual policy, a 0.1% cut in deposit rates […]
BORIS HAS A CHASTENING WEEK AS OPPOSITION DEFY NO DEAL BREXIT We mentioned last week the potential of fireworks in Parliament and so it came to fruition – with all of them aimed at Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Boris has had a spectacularly bad week. Highlights include, MP’s successfully backing legislation to stop a No […]

MARKETS AMPLIFY GLOBAL HEADWINDS This week was another eventful one for global markets. They fell at the start of the week on news that Trump was going to ramp up his trade war with China, rose when he decided not to and then plummeted again when weak data out of China and Germany stoked fears […]
WHY ITS TIME TO REVIEW MONETARY POLICY INDICATORS This week the world has been focused on those two hardy perennials, Trump and Brexit. The former for being racist and the latter for parliament acting to contain the new prime minister. At this point however, these events hardly qualify as news. Instead we’ve been taking a […]
UK NAVY BLOCKS IRANIAN ATTEMPT TO CAPTURE BP TANKER This week saw the UK get dragged into the simmering Middle East conflict between the US and Iran, when the Royal Navy had to intervene to prevent the Iranians from seizing a British tanker in the key shipping lane of the Strait of Hormuz. While this […]
