Brexit - Hugh Johnson

Jun 24, 2016

  Nearly every market move over the last two weeks has been attributed to the British referendum on whether the United Kingdom should remain with or leave the European Union.

When a poll showed the British might want to leave? Stocks would go down. Then it looked like the U.K. would stay in the political and economic bloc and stocks would bounce up. Now that the U.K. has officially voted in favor of leaving, markets are going wild.

Investors around the world went into crisis mode as British voters chose to leave the European Union in a stunning decision with far-reaching implications. Hugh Johnson of Hugh Johnson Advisors in Albany, New York joins us live in Studio A to discuss the impact of the vote on the world and US economies.

Global markets have had a rough week and a half, offering up some stomach-churning drops and rebounds as investors follow roller coaster news of China’s economy. That said, it’s not a hopeless time for your own portfolio. Joining us today to answer your financial questions is Thomas Brockley, senior vice president, financial advisor and branch director of the Capital Region office of RBC Wealth Management in Albany.

Global markets rebounded today following a stomach-churning day yesterday, when the Dow plunged more than 1,000 points in early trading. The plunge followed fears that China’s economy was headed for disaster. But now that they’ve cut their central bank’s interest rate, things appear to have gone back in the green. Economist Hugh Johnson of Hugh Johnson Advisors in Albany joins us today to discuss the global economy.
