BREXIT DEBATE INTENSIFIES This week the inevitable clash between Brexiteers and reality came to pass as Theresa May finally unveiled the Brexit deal. The basic facts are that hard Brexit is too economically destructive to be a genuine option, while any compromises to minimise that harm will leave us subject to EU rules without having […]
POLITICAL GRIDLOCK IN THE US AFTER MID-TERM ELECTIONS The US Midterms this week saw the Democrats wrestle back control of the House of Representatives after eight years, while the Republicans maintained control of the Senate leaving the country politically gridlocked. The elections weren’t without their fair share of controversy. Voting machines appeared to break down […]
POLITICAL UNCERTAINTY REMAINS AS MARKETS RALLY This week the market looks to have finally settled down, after prematurely declaring the same thing last week. While there have still been some big moves this week, they lacked any downward momentum and markets look like they will end up, bar any sudden swings in afternoon trading. While […]

Much of the news has focused on details of the Russian operation to poison former agent Sergei Skripal with a deadly nerve agent, this spy novel type attack has overshadowed the […]
REVIEW OF THE PAST QUARTER: September revealed contrasting monetary policy announcements. The Bank of Japan avoided tightening its interest rate and bond-buying policies, maintaining both with a long-term view of meeting the 2 per cent inflation target. In contrast, the Bank of England hiked rates and the US Federal Reserve is expected to announce another […]
PRESIDENT TRUMP’S SPEECH FALLS FLAT IN THE UN This week the Brexit waters were muddied further at the Labour party conference, with Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell and shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer putting forward conflicting positions in consecutive speeches. McDonnell appeared to favour a referendum on a bad deal versus no deal, while the […]
