'Nobody can predict the dollar or interest rates' is something we often hear. That is correct. The only problem is that this is of no use to you if you have to make decisions yourself – the uncertainty can carry a great deal of weight, certainly if such judgments could have a major financial impact. What do you do in this case?
The financial markets are highly complex. There is an increasing interaction between political, economic and market developments. If you are not involved with this on daily basis, it is almost impossible to continually keep up to date with all that develops. Various sources often arrive at different conclusions and you may lack the time to properly look into these and follow trends in a structured way. The experts at ICC devote 200 hours a week to this and ensure you are fully up to date within a 20-minute read.
