Real Time Insight

Most investors are currently bullish on the market. With the global economic growth gaining momentum and stocks still not too expensive, the market may continue its uptrend, though gains this year may not be anywhere close to last year’s.

But there are a number of things that could go wrong.

Some of the biggest risks are:

1.    QE tapering may not be smooth
2.    A credit crisis in China
3.    An ugly debt-ceiling debate
4.    Relapse of Euro-zone debt crisis
5.    A rise in geopolitical risks 

In my view, #1--‘taper tantrum’ is the biggest risk in the coming months. Faster than expected rise in interest rates could rattle financial markets, stall the housing recovery and cause another melt-down in emerging markets.
