From the point of view of investors, the past year was one to Forget: Except for exotic things like the metal Palladium investors have been able to 2018, with Investments barely earn something. The Swiss benchmark index SMI lost under the dash, around 10 percent of their value, the important US S&P 500 Index ended the year with a Minus of around 6 percent.

2019 threatens to be a depressing year, as The growth weakens worldwide, beginning in the lead market of the USA. In addition, a long list of political risks: "The development of relations between the United States and China and their global impact, and the self-inflicted Brexit-Chaos in the UK are large uncertainty factors for 2019", writes, for example, Stéphane Monier, Chief Investment Officer of the private Bank Lombard Odier, in his Outlook for the year.

Thus, the experts of the UBS in its baseline scenario, expect for the next six months, the stock markets in the United States and the Euro area in the best-case increase slightly. The trade conflict with China escalates, but more losses were expected.

Vontobel expert Spiliopoulos keeps it for better Investments by industry to select and not to countries. The above-mentioned reassurance should be entered, it keeps assets in the sectors technology, consumer goods and banks is worth consideration. Whatever the chosen investment strategy: Strong nerves should be a part of it.
