... central banks are greatly surprised by inflation and arent in any rush to cut the rates. Acutally, when the U.S. Federal Reserve meets this week, it is expected that they are going to raise the rates at least one more time before they consider lowering it.The other main concern for equities is earnings, which continue to disappoint analysts, which in turn, causes them to lower their profit forecasts for next year. The two main factors behind the dissatisfying earningsThese arent showing any signs of improvement, and many top experts continue to be cynical about the coming earnings reports. "We think the concerns about earnings will keep on resurfacing," says Roger Beedell, European equity strategist with BNP Paribas. "We have been seeing short-term rallies, but then they seem to get knocked on the head by more earnings news." There are, however, others who believe the current macroeconomic scenario will be more positive. For example, Kevin Gardiner, a strategist with J.P. Morgan, argues that bond yields are now largely stable, having already priced in the coming rate increases and, therefore, shouldn't weigh on equity valuations. He also believes the market is overly pessimistic about earnings growth next year. He believes the oil prices have slowed down the economy, yes, but also believes that it will have a fleeting effect. Mr. Gardiner expects the pan-European stock indices to gain around 10 over the next two to three months.The state of the worlds economy is in disarray and some analysts think we have nothing to worry about, while others tell us to get ready for even higher interest rates early next year. I am not an expert on the matters, but I have total faith in the markets and think we should not worry too much about it. Everything seems to work itself out.
