The financial markets are currently looking a little rockier than they were a year ago, with investors having already seen many of the returns from a reopening of the global economy in the wake of the pandemic, Covid is still out there, however, and will continue to exercise a disruptive influence over the coming months. Over the next few weeks we will be adding some tactical trading opportunities to our in-house portfolio to reflect what we see as a change in the dynamics of the market over the winter months. We are already seeing a big squeeze in the energy market, for example. and disruptions to supply chains, petrol stations, medicine deliveries, you name it.
