Uncertain times (again)! As I noted in one article I wrote earlier in the week:
'As the final quarter of the year approaches, new challenges overhang markets. Well, actually, they are the old challenges just repackaged. A second pandemic pan-European wave. The debate over both overall market and sector specific valuations. Geopolitical trade considerations. The ever closer U.S. Presidential election. Economic growth profiles and corporate earnings anticipations. And the omnipresent Brexit debate (naturally)...Much to be thinking about as we head into the final quarter of the year. There is always something to worry about otherwise economics would not be the ‘dismal science’ or have such a fine array of jokes targeted at it. But whilst we wait for the huge global effort to find a COVID-19 vaccine to play out, the best course of action remains to stay calm and welcome the start of the final three months of a sadly unforgettable year'
