But not on (a) high: This year has not ended with a traditional Santa Rally and the FTSE has ended the year down 12.12%. Looking on the bright side, a lot better than the Shanghai Composite which was the worst of the major stock markets with a 24.85% decline in 2018. Sterling has found a range for the past few weeks and awaits the next chapter in the unfolding political saga here in London. Putting that aside for the next week or so here’s hoping that Santa brings you all that you wish for!
From all of us here at SGM-FX a very Merry Christmas.
