2016 So Far, Not So Good

29 January 16

"... Whilst 2015 may have finished with a Santa rally in capital markets, 2016 has started horribly with losses across the world, oil tumbling even lower from 2015’s $37 close to as low as $28, and the Chinese continuing to devalue the Yuan.

.. For investors the climate is not just tough, it’s brutal. We are in the midst of the largest monetary experiment of all time, never has there been monetisation of debt on the scale we’ve seen the last 6 years or so. Bank bail-ins, capital controls, and even a possible ban on cash are coming. All these measures are being implemented because things are increasingly getting desperate, and if things get really bad, countries will close their economies to protect themselves.
How do you navigate a once-in-a-lifetime event like this?"
