|It’s been a tough couple of days on the major financial markets, with several analysts warning that the global economy could slump if the knock-on effects of a contraction in Chinese output push down commodity prices further and spark panic selling on stock and bond markets.
It’s clear, however, that everyone is watching closely and there’s a concerted effort not to panic or rock the boat.
Hopefully, the major players will have the conviction to ride the wave and get through the tough times.
So, hold tight!
