Event Description 

In early February this year, the stock market turmoil has sparked concerns that the relatively good economic times in the past couple of years, at least in the developed countries, could be ending.

Analysts suggest that “it is too early yet to understand what has just taken place or predict what comes next. It is widely agreed that a “correction” has taken place in the US stock market. But whether this is just a blip, or will progress to a crash, remains to be seen.”

In this seminar, we will review what happened during the financial crisis around 2008. We will then discuss current stock market fluctuations, examining the fundamental fallout and performance trend in the near future against the backdrop of the mid-term election. We will also briefly discuss the implications of global investment strategies.
