Fisher Investments Releases Views on U.S. Midterm Elections, Trade War Fears, and European Politics


New media releases from the firm analyze potential market impact of current events

CAMAS, Wash. (PRWEB) September 02, 2018

Fisher Investments continues to create and release new media on current events including two new YouTube videos examining major economic and market topics from this year. In the first video, "US Midterm Elections," Ken Fisher (Fisher Investments Executive Chairman & Co-Chief Investment Officer) and Michael Hanson (Senior Vice President, Research) discuss potential outcomes of the upcoming US midterm elections and what they might mean for stock markets. In Fisher Investments' view, the most likely outcome is continued political gridlock in Washington D.C.—a positive for stocks. In the second video, "Trade War Fears," members of the firm's Investment Policy Committee discuss the likely impact of imposed or threatened tariffs so far in 2018. Although tariff headlines may sound alarming, all tariffs currently implemented and threatened should have a negligible impact on global growth in their view. Ultimately, Hanson and Fisher believe the tariffs' effects are much more political than economic. These videos are freely available and featured on Fisher Investments' YouTube Channel.

Additionally, Fisher Investments regularly posts Market Insights podcasts. Market Insights podcasts give you the opportunity to hear directly from senior members of Fisher Investments' Client Services and Research departments. Each podcast is approximately 15 minutes long and reviews Fisher Investments' current thinking on market events. Recent topics include European politics, Emerging Markets, market volatility in 2018, tax reform and how to protect yourself from financial fraud.
