Outrageous Predictions
EU Commission introduces 5-10% wealth tax proposal
“Many bad decisions will be made in the name of inequality and deflation”
Anti-EU alliance will become largest group in parliament
“May 22-24th EU Parliament Election becomes a cry for less Europe”
Deflationary pressure is a new name of the game
Barclays have estimated the chances of European
deflation as 50/50 chance using inflation linked
products, but being more subjective we will say that
next three to six month almost certainly will push
more and more European nations close to zero
inflation. Greece and Ireland already in deflation,
Spain, Sweden, Denmark very close, and even
Germans saw inflation decline from 1.4 to 1.2.
there is an ETF which tracks the deflation
risk called:
Powershares DB US Deflation.
HSBC Global Research, 6 December 2013
piece: ‘Lacking demand’ have two great charts
to illustrate this point - through looking at the
GDP growth and the Investment-to-GDP
ratio. Good growth is linear correlation
indicating investment return is positve
and creating growth. Bad growth is rising
Investment to GDP ratio while growth
Asia experiences lower growth as
reducing the shadow economy now
takes centre stage and the current
account deficit nations are all looking for
weaker currencies, lower import and
lower growth.

Stock picking is where the capital goes..
2013 proved very well for equities. Our view for 2014 remain the same for
the companies with strong fundaments. Tapering and overall reduction of
support from CBs is already priced in. Unless unexpected shocks appear, we
remain positive on the US and EU stocks.
