The American Market Is Still The Best Place To Invest
Thanks to some big companies trading on the American stock market, such as Apple and Facebook, there are some very lucrative and safe investment opportunities. Alphabet stock has been doing extremely well in recent months thanks to Google’s continued growth and it looks like it won’t be letting up anytime soon. Thanks to all of these American giants on the NASDAQ, the American stock market looks like it will be a safer bet than all the global markets.
China Will Also Be A Safe Investment
However, there is one other global market that is also set to do particularly well. And that is China. For the past few years, the China stock market has been incredibly stable but it now looks like the market could be ready to grow steadily. In fact, this particular global market is currently doing a lot better than what the forecasters predicted. They had initially thought that it would slow down in the latter half of this year, but it is in fact still very stable. So it looks like it could have a very healthy 2018 indeed!
We Can Expect Low Inflation
For over 20 years, inflation in the US has been around about the 2% mark. And this looks set to stay for 2018. In fact, it looks like there will be no growth in inflation. That’s because globalization and tech markets are notorious for keeping inflation at very low levels.
Investors Will Shift To Technology
Speaking of technology, it is predicted that more and more investors will move to tech companies. As more and more technologically focused businesses are entering the stock market, there is now a lot more choice for investors in this sector than ever before. And they are responding very positively to this indeed! So, if you aren’t entirely sure where to place your cash, you can’t go too far wrong by investing in a tech company. An investment in an American tech company would set you up for some big returns in 2018!
