Weekly Market View from Realm Investment Management. Week ending 31st December 2021.
Equities were higher last week. US unemployment data was interesting showing jobless claims falling to the lowest level in 52 years indicating that the US job market is continuing to recover.
Going into 2022 the main issues for investors will be assessing what impact the Omicron variant is having on economies and the possibility of a faster than expected tightening by the Fed in response to persistently high inflation.
