In the year 2018, stock speculation will get huge increment, which leading to a small correction for the S&P 500, on the other hand oil prices will vault more than $ 80 as a part of tribalism, populism and anarchy spread across the world.

Apart from this with the decrease to 2,300, the USA equities of benchmark gauge will end the year more than 3,000 based on the profits and economics growth approaches 4 %, revealed by, vice chairman in the private wealth solutions group at Blackstone Group, Wien.

Last year, the formal Morgan Strategist told that the S&P 500 would jump 12 % and gained 19 %. Wien said that the American economy has a better year than 2017, speculation extends an extreme. Since 1986, Wien put out surprises list, said that it’s made up of several events that investors allot 1 in 3 odds of happening but he thinks they are over 50% likely.

But previous year’s crop didn’t come true.  He called for almost 10 year treasury yields to increase toward 4 %. Instead, they took up at 2.6 %. While he found oil right, says that it would remain below $ 60 a barrel, by exhibiting his point of view on the strength of dollar proved misplaced & he even misjudged Angela Merkel’s, German Chancellor chances of winning re-election.

Among his other calls for the upcoming year, the euro will decline to 1.10 vs the dollar & the yen will climb 120 against the American currency. With USA Treasury yields moving toward 4 %, interest rates will increase, due to inflation becomes a larger concern & the Federal Reserve secures 4 times.

Wien expects, in China’s economic growth to slow 5.5 % as president Xi Jinping moves focus to fix the credit problems of the country by restricting business borrowing. He also assumes that Xi will cut off all fuel & the food shipments in order to force North Korea to cancel its nuclear development program.

Despite United States of America president Trump’s resistance, the North American free trade agreement and the discussion with Iran will come through, Wien said.
