This page features all 2018 forecasts published by InvestingHaven’s research team. The 2018 forecasts cover different markets, essentially all global markets: gold price forecast for 2018, silver price forecast for 2018, predicting the direction of major stock markets in 2018, emerging stock markets in 2018 with specific focus on the India stock market in 2018 and Chinese markets.
In the series 2018 forecasts there is also special attention to the US dollar and other currencies. In analyzing the outlook for different markets, InvestingHaven starts any analysis with intermarket dynamics. In doing so it tries to identify the primary market trends which is the basis of the forecasting methodology.
“According to our analysis, we believe that the stock market in the U.S. could seriously correct at a certain point in 2018.” This is what we wrote still in 2017. As we all know in the meantime a serious US stock market correction, a mini-crash in 2018, took place in the first weeks and months of 2018. This resulted in a rotation of capital within the U.S. stock market. So far, no rotation was seen from the US into emerging market stocks.
Moreover, InvestingHaven predicted last year that the first signs of potential inflation would come up. That was a forecast done around the summer of 2017. We wrote” If that comes true, it would favor commodities and currencies of commodity driven markets like Australia. However, the inflation trend is not validated yet, so investors better be careful going all in commodities.” This forecast appeared to be spot on, at the moment of reviewing this (summer 2018).
The hottest 2018 forecast is the blockchain and crypto space, as well as a select number of cannabis segments.
