As Market Week in Review kicks off the new year, Chief Investment Strategist Erik Ristuben sets the stage for expected market volatility in 2016, discussing the drivers behind China’s decision to devalue its currency and the impacts for investors.
Mark Soupiset hosts this week’s market update, which also looks at the very good December U.S. employment figure and what it could mean for the Fed’s interest rate decision in March. Ristuben also gives his views on why investors in Europe should pay close attention to strong manufacturing data (PMI) released this week.
