  • Tsipras is faced with a hostile parliament, considering that all political parties except his own Syriza will vote against his government. Tsipras called a vote of confidence last week, after Defence Minister Panos Kammenos, the leader of the conservative junior coalition partner, resigned because he opposes the name deal with the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), the so-called Prespa agreement.
  •  ‘Der Manfred’ made his audience even more stupefied when he told them that he appreciated the European Conservatives and Reformists group (ECR). Ten years ago the ECR was formed by the British Conservatives to provide a euro-critical alternative to the EPP’s traditionally blind pro-EU stance. Weber even praised ECR’s member and Poland’s governing national-conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party
  • Remarkable is, that so far there is no real sign of an economic slowdown in the US; and China’s statistics show imports from Europe are slowing but still growing. However, across the Eurozone we see a weakening in the rate of increase of consumer spending. This surely cannot be blamed upon the slowdown in China
  • 2018 was not a good year for investors. Not only did the global equity markets end the year with losses, there was also little money to be made from investments in commodities, gold or high-yield government and corporate bonds. One main lesson that ought to be learned from 2018 is that following majority opinions among analysts and market participants does not guarantee investment success at all
  • Demand growth next year still looks strong enough to provide commodity markets with support, making the kind of price collapse seen during 2015 unlikely. However, volatility in commodity markets will continue in 2019, particularly in oil markets. We predict oil prices will rise a bit in the near term and average around $70.0 per barrel over the coming year, compared with an average $71.0 in 2018
