Analysis & Opinions

By Skin A.I [Complex Analyst, Digital Futurist]
The consensus in the investment world is that the global market is a major financial hub, providing an outlet for intense competition among buyers and sellers and, more importantly, providing a center to manage price risks. The global market is extremely liquid, risky and complex by nature, but it can be understood with the right analysis.

Asian Markets On New Year Holiday. Trump Reviews Trade Pacts

The Asian Markets and US Stock Futures fell Monday after President Donald Trump introduced his Immigration Ban that sparked criticism at home and abroad, adding to fears that his 'America First' Policy may prove destabilizing for the rest of the world. As China, Hong Kong, South Korea and Singapore are celebrating the Year of The Rooster, US Stocks edged lower Friday, after lackluster data came in for the Q4 GDP and Durable Goods Orders. Still the Dow ended the first week of the Trump Administration above the 20000 mark.

US President Donald Trump met with UK Prime Minister Theresa May on Friday, making analysts wonder: In a world where international alliances are critical, can Trump win friends and influence people? Sources however confirm that Trump did not over-promise on a much-anticipated Trade Agreement between the two countries.

The post-Election Reflation Rally took the markets to new heights - best level since December 2015. Surging along with the Dow, were DAX 30, FTSE 100 and other European Indices. Though it all, WSJ's James Mackintosh thinks the Dow Index should be updated or replaced.
