What’s Keeping Traders Up At Night?

Losing sleep? No wonder!

Here are the top 4 issues on most traders minds right now.

#1 The impending recession

Ever growing fears of the impending, and long overdue, next recession are sure to be weighing on traders minds in the early hours.

#2 Ukraine

This needs no introduction. Now 4-months into the conflict in Ukraine, uncertainty in the markets is still abound. The economic sanctions that have been placed on Russia have really shaken up the markets too.

#3 Oil prices

Oil prices are continuing to rise, not least because of the impact of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

#4 More Covid Restrictions

We couldn’t not mention this. Despite the fact that lockdowns and restrictions are well behind us, variants are still being touted as a threat to the freedom of movement. UK infections are reportedly on the rise, up 30% week on week.
