The Influence of Geopolitical and Market Undercurrents on Investors

While we currently see a broadening of steady economic growth in the U.S. and beyond, many of today’s market themes provide potentially fertile ground for a serious market correction, but the big question is, what would trigger it?

A remarkable set of market circumstances are elbowing their way into the investor psyche right now. The current equity bull market continues its resilience, volatility is low, the rollback of monetary easing is imminent in the U.S. while policymakers in Europe and the UK are contemplating the unwinding of their own QE programs, inflation rates are rising, and then, of course, there is the existence of very significant geopolitical risks taking place in several areas of the world, particularly in the Korean peninsula. The OTC derivatives market is also central to the global financial system, and the increasing demand of eligible collateral and expanding margin requirements could have their impact as well.
In this video, James Jockle, Chief Marketing Officer at Numerix, and Udi Sela, FX expert and Vice President of Business Development at Numerix, explore the key trends, ideas and risks that are informing current market conditions and investor behavior.
