2016 Financial Predictions: Watch And Learn

2016 Financial Predictions: Watch And Learn

As 2016 unfolds, it’s worth looking at some financial predictions from various UK and US experts

UK and US Financial Predictions For 2016

Will Stock Markets ‘Lift Off’ In 2016

One of the most informative UK financial sites is Citywire Money.  In his short video, Gavin Lumsden, Editor of The Lolly, provides his financial predictions with an overview of the world economy and investments markets, with a little help from British astronaut Tim Peake.

Financial Predictions US-Style

If the expression “when the United States sneezes, the World catches a cold” has any truth to it, which it certainly did following the financial crisis of 2008, it’s worth having a quick look at some financial predictions from over the pond.  It makes for some scary viewing. 

Biggest Stock Market Crash In History Coming In 2016 - Robert Kiyosaki

2016 Predictions Gold, Silver, War and Collapse - Gerald Celente

Why The Crash Of 2016 Will Happen - Thom Hartmann

Whilst the financial predictions above may contain some interesting and poignant observations, it’s probably fair to say they are well buried beneath the ‘shock horror’ style of reporting that Americans seem to love.

If a stockmarket crash is coming, one of the best ways to protect your money is to diversify into other uncorrelated asset classes, such as lending.

The most obvious conclusion to draw from all four videos above and many other financial predictions is that nothing is certain, let alone predictable!

Wishing you a prosperous 2016.

AJ Bell Is The Best Value SIPP For Stockmarket Assets

That's our opinion.  Not just because AJ Bell was the first company to offer an online SIPP.  Nor that it's received many prestigious awards.  And not even because the wife of SIPPclub's Founder has an AJ Bell SIPP.  It's because it's one of the most competitive stockmarket SIPPs on the market. 

Over time, charges can wipe out a huge part of your fund.  We like AJ Bell because there are no set-up costs.  If you hold passive funds, which is our preference, or shares, investment trusts, EFTs, gilts or bonds, you pay one small fixed fee no matter how large your fund.  And when you come to draw your benefits either as occasional drawdown or UFPLS payments, there's a small charge for the whole year no matter how many times you access your money (many SIPP and SSAS providers charge more than this for each payment).
