2017 stock market

In a few weeks it will be Christmas and after that we will have a new years eve. If we look back at 2016 a lot have happened. But 2017 stock market will be the year that will bring us a lot of new hope. And for some a new beginning (US ,UK, EU). In 2017 there are a lot of elections in Europe. Countries such as the Netherlands, France, Germany and Italy will choose their new presidents or prime ministers. These elections might give fear to investors, which will lead the European stock market into a bearish trend.

 

2017 stock market: Brexit

The prime minister Theresa May is aiming to start article 50 by the end of March 2017. By triggering this Article 50, the Uk can start the procedure and negotiation talks to leave the EU union.

When the Brexit was voted, Juncker was eager to start the negotiation talks as soon as possible. Seemed he was well prepared for that. But I think times have turn a bit to the Uk advantage. Because the UK has already a few companies, that promised to stay after the Brexit. And a few companies like Apple promised to keep on investing and creating jobs in the UK.

The Brexit negotiations talks will have an effect on the European stock markets for sure. Whether it will be negative or positive it is hard to tell. But one thing will be sure is that both parties will do their best to create the best environment for business to go or stay at their place. So in the end the Brexit thing might be the best thing that has happened for businesses.

As a thought I think when the start of the Brexit negotiations talks begins that the markets will react for a short period of time. Because I think that both parties will try the calm down the markets. After all a crashing financial markets looks bad for politicians. And the ECB and BOE won’t stand on the sideline either.

 

2017 stock market: Donald Trump

On one of my youtube videos, I had predicted that Donald Trump would win the election. Since the win of Trump the stock market has been hitting new all time high records. We are currently in a bullish trend.As long Donald can make his promise come true about the tax reduction and getting rid of some regulations rules for businesses in the current positive economic growth of US, then I don’t see a reason yet of why the bullish trend of the 2017 stock market has to stop.

However the markets will go down as soon Donald’s China teasing takes a serious form. Right now I think that Donald is testing the waters with China to negotiate a better trade deal.

 

Other things to keep a eye on in 2017 stock market

A few other things to keep an eye on are the Russian 2017 stock market and its currency Russian Rubble. I think both of them will go higher in value in 2017. I think that Putin will succeed in persuading US and Japan in cancelling their economic sanctions against Russia. And more importantly I think that Oil prize will stabilise. Both of these factors will benefit Russia well.

Bitcoin will continue to go in price as well, the reason for this is mainly China. China will continue to face challenges to stabilise their currency Yuan against the US dollar.

Facebook stocks have been doing good this year, in comparison to  the general stock market is facing challenges during the year. Facebook stocks remained steadily in a bullish trend. How ever if you look at the table.

You will see that FB stocks are currently moving in range of 123 usd and 126 usd. Which is a pretty small price range movement. And with this movement it indicates that we are in a sideway trend.

 

How is Facbook doing in term of business?

Facebook mission is to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected. So far Facebook has been doing really well to executing that mission. If you take a look at the table then you will that they are succeeding in getting  new people to use their social network platform and getting more people to stay engage and being active on their platform.

For example in June their daily active users rose to 1.13 billion active users. That is pretty impressive. If you compare that to the competition like twitter, who are struggling on getting more daily active users.

For Facebook business it’s that the more active users they have , the more advertisers are willing to spend. The more profit can be made which leads into a increasing value of the Facebook stock.

And Facebook is trying to get more users all over the globe and building his presence in the 3th world countries. So that as soon as people have internet they can open a Facebook account. And they are  doing that by offering free internet in those countries.

Recently a rocket exploded at SpaceX. That rocket was supposed to launch a new satellite for Facebook. That satellite was suppose to give internet to area’s where it is difficult to get internet. With this rocket explosion it will probably cause a delay in the plans of Mark Zuckerberg  to get new users for his platforms.

Back the business side. Fb is has increased his revenue in the 2nd quarter with 68%. And if you continue to look at the table then you will see that in overall they increase their revenue and profit.

But recently is has breakthrough the resistance level of 126 USD. But it doesn’t to be a strong push. So let see if Facebook is going towards the close of above 127 USD.
