Take This Into Account For 2015

The end of the year is once again in sight and that is why we are eager to look forward to next year already. We want to line up the things you will need to be taking into account next year as an investor. Don’t go telling you were not warned.

First, you will need to keep the uncertainty in the Eurozone in mind. The ECB has made a number of nice promises, but it will also have to deliver on these promises, of course. Next to that, inflation is still hovering around 0 and that will have to change sooner rather than later.

The oil price could go down further. This all has to do with the oil that has been found underneath American soil. The technology to get the oil out of the ground will only improve, the reserves are enormous and more shale oil will put downward pressure on the oil price.

Odds are also high that the dollar will remain strong next year as well. The US central bank has hit the brakes and if the US economy can prove that it can stand on its own two legs, this will positively affect the price of the American dollar.

The Fed will also play an important role next year. Although quantitative easing has been stopped as a program, investors will potentially respond to the possibility of the central bank raising interest rates. The mystery surround the raise has not faded.

China will have to prove next year that it will not wither away. The Chinese economy is heavily under pressure and the Chinese government will have to do everything in its power to beat the expectations of the market. Time will only tell if it can!
