Declining Oil Prices, Sluggish Stock Markets and Gold are Capturing Investors’ Attention

New York, NY – The recent global trends in major markets have captured investors’ attention, the most important being the bearish oil prices and the subsequent lack of momentum in stocks, reveals Strahan McNeil Partners, the New York based finance and accounting firm with a global network of financial experts.

The recent downtrend in crude oil, with the US benchmark falling below its price in August 2016, may not hit the panic button, but is being watched with alert eyes. While prices will fluctuate, the underlying imbalances of the oil market and the role of high levels of US oil production are expected to continue.

On the stocks side of the picture, there is again a loss of momentum, while gold has shown upward tendencies. Investors will need to be cautious while deciding on their strategies, be it small caps or the yet to blossom healthcare index. Whether overvalued or not, the long term perspective can be considered brighter, given the rise of new technological forces such as automation.

“Investors should keep an eye on how oil, stocks and government bonds perform in the near future, as this will reveal the larger trends at work,” says Strahan McNeil.
