To be honest, most people are downplaying the vote. There’s a serious risk that we’ll see a referendum by year’s end. I believe Italy will hold a referendum to leave the Eurozone this year. You can’t ignore the majority of Italians voted for Eurosceptic parties.
Stay informed about the latest developments in the ongoing crisis in the Eurozone and the European economy.
Trouble usually equals opportunity for the investor. Whether it means picking up shares on the cheap or real estate in the doghouse — perhaps even the euro when it’s ‘on sale’ — don’t discount Europe’s economy from your investing radar.
It’s been over a week since the Italian election. The French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, were planning for more integration. They want to continue with a banking union to protect members in case of another financial crisis.

I wouldn’t be surprised if many developed economies continue their growth struggles in the near future. While various nations believe their economies are ‘strong’, those same nations are uncertain about the future.
Our competitive advantage is in materials, mining and agriculture. The next 10 years could be a sweet spot of economic development for Australia...
France or the US. Which is worse? It is hard to say. But the French know something Americans don’t: This too shall pass. And it has made them cautious.
Governments are always finding ways to make life expensive, difficult, inefficient and unproductive. Particularly the French government...
Now, almost every large property in the valley is for sale. But there are no buyers. No investors. Who would want to take on so much trouble…and so much risk? Progress here has slowed down. In one of the poorest parts of South America, people are getting poorer.
The global stock markets have never been safer. Least, not in a quarter century. Apparently Macron’s election triumph has laid France’s problems to rest.
Le Pen winning the French presidential election was an outside shot. I got it wrong! Macron won 65% of the vote and became the French president-elect.
I believe that Marine Le Pen will win this weekend’s election and become the next French president. I don’t make this forecast lightly.
A Marine Le Pen victory is the perfect event for a stock market correction. So, how should you trade a Le Pen victory? It’s simple...
Europe is a debt and demographic time bomb. It (dys)functions with a ‘united’ economic model. A model that favours the industrious Germans over the rest.
The slightest withdrawal of the economic stimulant plunges an economy into depressive conditions. A very serious problem.
You should instead think of the coming correction as a major buying opportunity. Look to buy your favourite stocks near the low.
