The Week That Was And The Week Ahead: Review of 2018
It's not been a year in the markets that many investors will remember fondly. Graham Spooner of The Share Centre looks back at the year that was 2018, highlighting some of the household names that have fallen out of favour as well as pointing out a surprising winner. Warning of value traps, he highlights some of the main influences on shares, including Brexit, trade wars and interest rates. Whether 2019 starts well or not, the advice is to drip-feed investment rather than try to call a chance in sentiment.
