Global markets shudder as US election tightens - with Chris Justham

Global markets shudder as US election tightens - with Chris Justham

Global stock markets are reacting negatively to a new poll that gives a one point lead to the Republican party nominee Donald Trump over his Democrat rival Hillary Clinton, in the US presidential election. A single solitary point might not seem like a big deal but it is significant as Trump's campaign was recently on the back foot. Despite the fragility of his lead investors are taking cover in safe havens which is why gold and even bonds are suddenly looking attractive. Those brave enough to keep faith with equities are being rewarded with losses: London's FTSE 100 touched a one month low, Japan's Nikkei 225 fell by more than one and a half per cent at the close of trade while the arrows on the US futures markets are heading south. There may be doom and gloom out there - but it hasn't been enough to wipe the smile off the face of Chris Justham, Relationship Manager at 7 Investment Management. He joined Share Radio's Juliette Foster in the studio.
