Its the official start of summer and things are starting to shake up. Plenty of news in the business and finance world to roil the markets – from Greece about to default, Puerto Rico announcing that it may not be able to repay its debt, Chinese market seeing a drop, and the list goes on. Amid these global turmoils, comes increased volatility in both the stock and bond markets and the central banks remain in focus to watch out for the investors. Amid these concerns, the risk of interest raise in 2015 keeps slipping to a later date and the gravy train continues. On the Canadian front, the risk of recession still looms with the oil market seeing major cutbacks during the first half of the year. Economists still expect interest rate cuts from the Bank of Canada to prop up the economy – and I will be looking forward to it as a consumer and investor.
