Global equity meltdown in early February shocked many investors, and surging volatility led to rising scepticism on the sustainability of the longest bull run in three decades. Although global economy stood on strong footing of a cyclical upswing, central banks are ready to end the era of ultra-low interest rates with monetary tightening. Can US tax reform counterbalance the negative impact brought by Fed’s rate hikes? Where are markets heading to in 2018?

Find out the answers by joining CMC’s investment forum on 24 March 2018 at NTUC Auditorium.
