2016: The Melting Pot Market

Much of the news coverage about global markets so far this year has been negative, with investors and observers warily eying fragile markets on every continent looking for some good news.

Marty Wolf’s latest analysis published on LinkedIn earlier today explores what’s behind today’s market headlines, analyzing the implications for the global IT industry. It’s an unusual time – while growth has historically always commanded a premium, there are cracks in the facade even for high flyers like 2015’s popular FANG grouping.
