Market Commentary January 2015

Please find this month’s Market Commentary newsletter which contains our view on the stock market based upon fundamental and technical analysis along with some recommended investments for the current market.

Last month, we remained overweight on the stock market, noting that December was historically the best month of the year. Unusually for this time of the year, the market fell 2.3%. However, there was some Christmas cheer for investors as the market arrested a 8.5% decline, which left the FTSE 100 at one stage at 6,147. Our recommendation, the Premier Oil 5% 11/12/20 bond, rose 7%.

In this month’s commentary, we are recommending the best performing investment trust over the last five years with a yield of 11%.
