As a down January is upon us ,with gusto . The market is heading down because Mr M has decided to attack the periphery ( ie smaller countries). Good plan . That will no doubt take the FTSE , to just above the 6000 figure.
Plus , of course , The USA bond buying reduction will add to this concern.
Thus , healthy re-trace ensues and a decent stabilisation for materials and material stocks ,which since 2011 `s peak , have been pummelled . Oil and gold stocks are now of interest and you should be adding them to your portfolio .
