Volatility in 2012: Will It Linger Longer?

While European woes have led to investors’ fears and market volatility, a host of other hazards pose potential dangers. Despite the US markets recent positive trends in GDP and employment, key uncertainties remain: housing market, foreclosures, budgetary political impasse, tougher regulations and legacy mortgage litigations. We should not forget that several trillion in planned budget cuts are still ahead. The impact of the slowdown in BRICs, jointly due to the European crisis and their own natural economic evolution, may not be compensated by the US economy and emerging markets.

The potential in rapidly expanding BRICs’ credit markets, particularly in China, should be watched. As an example, the first domestic AAA default in China had the potential to send shockwaves through the Chinese economy but was cured by the bond guarantor. The Arab Spring, Egypt’s election, and potential Iranian blockade of Strait of Hormuse are still looming.
