IG Outlook 2022: Electric vehicles with Julie Boote

1/5/2022
Electric vehicles (EVs) have started to become ‘mainstream’ in this last year, according to Julie Boote from Pelham Smithers Associates. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor caught up with Julie to look at where the demand is coming from and what developments are likely to move the sector next year. But EVs are expensive compared to combustion engine vehicles, and the infrastructure is not there to allow us all to charge these types of vehicles in a domestic environment. But, Boote says this is all...

12/8/2021
Language apart, the China stock market has several layers of accessibility. IG’s Jeremy Naylor caught up with Kraneshares’ Brendan Ahern, a specialist in the China stock market, to find out what it all means. Whether it is A shares, B shares, or shares traded on the Hong Kong market, the ‘alphabet soup’ of classification may seem off-putting.

Gold faltering as an inflation hedge?

11/30/2021
Nitesh Shah, head of commodities at WisdomTree Europe, says in this cycle gold hasn't quite lived up to its reputation as an inflation hedge, as inflation heads towards 30-year highs in the US, while gold prices are not quite where we would expect them to be. Shah told IG’s Daniela Sabin Hathorn that according to the new models he’s produced, gold should be trading in excess of $2,000 per oz, with inflation at 6.2% in the US, but rather it’s around the $1,795 level. He says when looking...

What is driving the bull market in US stocks and how long will it run?

11/24/2021
With a number of supporting factors, there is every expectation that the bull run in US equities will continue for the foreseeable future. Dhaval Joshi from BCA Research tells IG there may be bumps in the road, but the rally remains intact - until there is a reversal. What causes that reversal is likely to be one of three factors. First is that we start to see extreme valuations calculated by multiplying the long bond yield by profits. The second is if the 30-year yield were to rise...

What will drive UK house prices in 2022?

11/17/2021
The UK property market has withstood the battering that was expected when we all went into lockdown in March 2020. Indeed, the ONS house price index for September 2021 confirmed an 11.8% rise in prices year-on-year. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor explains in bringing this data up to date by using Rightmove’s index for November, while the month saw the biggest drop in prices since January 2021 - with a £2,000 slide to £342,400 - the market still looks resilient. He caught up with Jeremy Leaf, a...

While the AIM market goes from strength to strength, with increased volume and raised expectations for mergers and acquisitions, does it come at a cost?

Markets likely to keep steady as growth and inflation return to ‘normal’

10/27/2021
With a generation of new market participants, used to falling rates and rising markets, Rick Bensignor, founder of Bensignor Investment Strategies, says they will have to get used to ‘normality’ as markets return to higher levels of inflation.

COP26: how difficult will it be to meet political targets?

10/20/2021
Despite best political efforts it’s almost certainly going to be difficult to meet aggressive climate change targets, according to Angelos Damaskos, CEO of Sector Investment Managers. He says it will be a mix of using existing energy resources and finding ways to increase output from renewables, but even then, the cost of building new renewable resources and encouraging people to switch to electric will be an uphill struggle.

Has gold lost its allure?
