Financial Orbit wrap 19/12/14

Five sentences or graphics which sum up the Financial Orbit output over the last 24 hours across the website, twitter account and anything else thought about...

1. With the Santa Claus rally kicking in (and some more) over the last couple of days thoughts are turning to what comes after the holiday season.  The Financial Times ran an interesting graphic showing that the historically much vaunted 'January effect' may not be as excitable as it once was perceived: 

2. I grade myself on my 2014 macro calls...the scorecard looks ok I think! (Link here). 

3. Having taken a look at the Carnival corporate numbers I conclude that the share has lots of theme positives...but the shares are a bit richly valued for me currently. 

4. What else happened in the world today?  Ukraine got downgraded again, Belarus bumped up its interest rates way beyond the level in Russia and what a great chart comparing Venezuela to historic Greece: 

 5. And finally...have a great weekend.
