In this webinar, we will review the current economic and political situation around the globe and evaluate what to expect in the upcoming year. Markets have been buffeted by a series of shocks this year — many of them coming from the political, rather than economic, arena. But after the referendum vote on June 23rd expressing the desire of the UK electorate to leave the European Union the impeachment vote against former President Rousseff in Brazil at the end of August, the overwhelming victory of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Japan’s Upper House Elections in July and the attempted coup d’état in Turkey, President-elect Trump’s win constitutes one of the biggest surprises for investors in so far in 2016.

FX market volatility in the major currencies has risen sharply following the presidential election and seems likely to remain elevated through the first months of the New Year. We will evaluate upcoming central bank actions as well as the end of the year prices of the major currencies and our forecasts for price movements in 2017
