Investment Markets Overview — W/E 1st May 2015

The two main economic events of the week were the US FOMC meeting and the preliminary Q115 US GDP numbers, albeit that some would suggest the Bank of Japan’s comments on Japan’s GDP and inflation forecasts were of equal importance. Meanwhile, the UK coalition government enters its final few days in power ahead of the most uncertain general election in decades. The polls are suggesting that neither of the two major parties will obtain a majority to govern hence, after weeks of rubbishing each others policies, bridges will have to be built to enable a working coalition to rule. The economy is at the heart of the debates, with the majority of the runners disparaging any attempt to reduce the Nation’s staggering debt to GDP and the budget deficit which is interestingly worse than that of Greece, a country nearing the point of default. Economic data is a difficult topic to understand, particularly when a growing number of the electorate are having difficulty in actually knowing who the Prime Minister is.
