Will There Be a Santa Claus Rally in Q4?

Frank Holmes joined Akiko Fujita on CNBC Asia to discuss his outlook on global stock markets as we approach the end of 2018. Frank says there could be a “Santa Claus rally” at year end with strong fourth quarter earnings before hitting a possible slowdown in 2019 due to declining PMI readings. In terms of the ongoing geopolitical and market volatility caused by U.S.-China trade tensions, Frank suggests that long-term investors like himself look for fundamentals and economically sustainable measures rather than short-term sentiment.
