The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: What the cut in oil output could mean for global growth
Victoria Scholar of Interactive Investor looks at the rally in the oil price in the wake of Opec+ planning to cut oil output by 2 million barrels a day. While this may mean more misery for the motorist, it could benefit oil companies, despite Shell slumping after its pre-earnings announcement. But with many countries teetering on the edge of recession, could the higher oil price depress economies still further?

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: What should investors do in these markets?
Russ Mould of A J Bell is slightly puzzled by some of the market reaction to the UK mini-budget, given how little debt, relatively speaking, is being added to the whole, though realising how poorly it was presenting. He thinks investors should get rid of anything causing discomfort in their portfolios as that discomfort could get much greater. He offers advice on the sort of stocks investors should be holding and, for reasons of diversification, wonders if short-term bonds might be worthwhile. But if there's a big shakedown, he says, then bargains will appear.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Interest rate decisions from the Fed and the BoE
Victoria Scholar of Interactive Investor discusses with Simon Rose the Fed's hiking of interest rates by 75 basis points, with indications they have further to go. The move strengthened the dollar still further. In the UK, the Bank of England opted for a 50 basis point rise, rather than 75 (the highest level since 2008), with the MPC split over the decision. With the pound continuing to weaken, she also discusses why former ratesetter Danny Blanchflower has said investors should short sterling.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Why Jackson Hole is vital this year
Victoria Scholar of Interactive Investor tells Simon Rose why the Jackson Hole central bank symposium in Wyoming is so important this year and what we might expect Fed Chair Jay Powell to say. With the severity of inflation a major driver of markets, we can expect them to be jittery for some time. In the UK, the new price cap will have a big effect on the CPI numbers.

Victoria Scholar of Interactive Investor explains why markets viewed the lastest US inflation numbers – softening to 8.5% – so positively. She discusses what might be expected from the UK's GDP figures.
