As the new year is fresh upon us we wanted to be one of the first to wish you a very Happy New Year. Before anything else we hope that 2017 is a happy and healthy one and then beyond that of course a prosperous one.
From a trading perspective it really was sad to see the back of 2016 as it delivered an unprecedented amount of news to get our trading teeth into both from a scheduled and unscheduled perspective. It would be impossible to list every single one but it is quite easy to reflect on the main highlights by simply going back through all the live trade videos from the past 12 months HERE.
2016 opened and closed with an absolute bang with the China slowdown jitters rocking the markets in early January closely followed by several central banks responding with rate action. Then mid-year it was all about the small matter of ‘Brexit’ before the shock US election victory for Donald Trump. All this was then beautifully capped off by the FED who not only raised rates in December but who also communicated a very bullish view for 2017 (3 hikes instead of 2), sending the USD flying higher.
We could easily talk all night and day about 2016 but its now about getting our head space onto 2017. As traders we have to be forward looking and focus in on what is likely to happen over the coming months. 2016 is going to be hard to match but we do have a number of juicy events already lined up for the first half of the year and we are so eager to get started again after a lovely, and much needed, festive break.
No doubt you are also eager to hit the ground running and so we are delighted to be able to share with you a bonus training video, which we recorded this time last year for our private clients, but the material is still very relevant today and will provide a number of lessons to not only digest but implement throughout the coming months. The concepts are simple in nature but very very powerful and we are confident that you will find them useful and, most importantly, profitable. To access the video you simply need to CLICK HERE and it will take you direct.
Here’s to another cracker of a year!
