Big Week For Markets

It will be another testing week for markets as they battle to navigate their way around several issues that could all pose significant risks in their own right. President Trump seems to be coping well with his infection according to doctors that are monitoring his health. This state of the President’s condition will no doubt be one of the main topics at the forefront of markets this week.

Elsewhere, both Brexit and US stimulus talks will feature as key elements this week. Brexit negotiations will enter an intense 2-week phase where the crucial issue of fisheries will be discussed. While the UK would like all their waters back, it appears this is not suited to France who would still like access. The US will also continue their debate over a new round of fresh stimulus. Given the latest turn of events in the election race, both sides may push harder for compromise to bring some form of stability back to the country.

This week sees the most recent set of meeting minutes from the Fed’s last gathering at the end of September. This will be preceded by a speech tomorrow from Chairman Powell who will be addressing the National Association of Business Economists. He’s also very likely to reiterate the need for further fiscal stimulus.

Have a good week.

Testimonials

Our Clients Say

"I have had an association with Cornhill for over a decade and have had the pleasure of working with the same broker for the entire period of time, which is currently just over 15 years. This shows not only my dedication and customer loyalty to the company, but also their commitment and successful staff retention. The level of service I have received has never waned or altered and has been consistent over the term. Keep up the good work Cornhill. Dominic you are a legend."

Helen - FD, Essex Boatyard

"When deciding to buy a property in France, my husband and I failed to consider the implications of the currency exchange and to be honest, it was extremely daunting to know that the cost of the property could have increased significantly potentially wiping out any renovations we had planned had we sat on our hands and left it to chance. Thankfully, Dominic (our account manager) and the rest of the Cornhill team couldn’t have been more helpful, and as such helped us to understand our options and secure a price that puts our bank to shame. Always courteous and friendly, we don’t know what we would have done without them now!"

Samantha Johnson - Private Client

"I work to very tight margins in my business and as such currency volatility has a major impact on how well my business performs. After dealing with my bank for many years, I took the step of opening an account with Cornhill after meeting one of their team at an industry event. James took the time to explain the services and quickly highlighted what I was missing from my bank – proactivity and competitive pricing. It’s almost impossible to get through to someone at my bank without jumping through many hoops. Cornhill are always in touch at the right time, which helps me to time my currency purchases and make the most of moves in my favour. I now rest easy knowing I have a team of people working FOR my business and adding true value to it both in pricing terms and proactivity terms. My profits have increased and I know I am in good hands!"

Martin Fisher – FD of a Packaging Business

"My products are made abroad by trusted suppliers who I have worked with for many years. After a number of issues with my previous currency provider (payments being delayed), I decided to look at who else could help with my payments. Fortunately, I was introduced to Cornhill by a former colleague who uses their services. Since then, I haven’t looked back. Customer service is often overlooked in this ever-increasing digital age, but to know I have someone to call at the end of the phone who will listen to my query and take ownership of it for me is a breath of fresh air. Vivek and Greg have been reassuring and whenever I have a question for them, they are quick to respond and resolve."
