The global macroeconomic outlook has deteriorated drastically in 2019. Global manufacturing activity has contracted against the backdrop of rising trade protectionism and has elevated the risk of a global recession. Brexit, the Hong Kong protests, the "Fourth Industrial Revolution" and the US-China trade war has added uncertainty to the market outlook.

These are interesting times for traders and investors. Listen to market experts on their views on equity, currency, commodity markets and how the development of artificial intelligence might shape our future lives. Join us at CMC Markets’ annual investment conference.
