“It has been a year for rallies in equities, even for the FTSE 100, which is up about 12% in price terms from New Year’s Eve 2018. Compared to the S&P 500 or the Dax, this is fairly unimpressive, but is unsurprising given the tough macro outlook not just for the UK but for the broader global economy. We endured plenty of Brexit and trade war headlines in 2019, but these will go with us into next year, ensuring more volatility for traders and investors,” said IG’s Chris Beauchamp.
