At the start of 2015 (20 January 2015), I wrote about uncertainties investors would be facing in the year. Investing is going to be difficult. Risk is higher. With about one more month to the end of 2015, investing was indeed challenging. China economy is a big drag. Oil prices declined with Brent Crude falling below US$50 per barrel.
Global economies slowed this year. The only bright spot is the United States and interest rate lift-off is going to happen. Japan and European Union are still in monetary expansionary mode. It was that bad.
I mentioned in the January post for caution in investment. I was not active in investing this year. At the rate this is going, I am not going to do well when compared with 2014. But it is better to be careful than to take unnecessary risks.
