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.
But as we reach the end of the first quarter, one thing is becoming clear: 2016 will be a year defined not by one particular story or factor, but instead an economic melting pot, where everything comes together to result in a decreased appetite for risk across the global economy.
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.
