Weekly review :
Equities markets have started to price the « Trump » risk since last friday and the notification by FBI to the Congress on new information potentially damaging to Hillary Clinton in the email case. On top of that the earnings season for US companies is not as rosy as expected especially in terms of guidance for the next quarters. As expected Fed did hold on rates but a hike is nearly a given for the December meeting as per current market expectations.
In this context, our benchmarks are down 2% (SP500) and 4,13 % for (Eurostoxx50) , an average of 3,05% decline on the week. Weekly indices performances here : http://www.investorid.one/indices-perfs-051116/

The Japan tracker, Eurostoxx50 & Eu Banks tracker (-3,67 -4,13 & -5,21%) underperformed the benchmark.
