Zurich, Switzerland, January 29, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- After a shaky 2017, the global market is anticipating growth. Unique Finance, a global investment and financial planning firm, shares three predictions for 2018.
With the rise of cryptocurrency and fall of the value of the British Pound, 2017 brought its fair shares of highs and lows. In 2018, the market is showing signs of stabilizing growth. Here are three trends that will set the tone for this year:
1. Increase in global trade. According to the World Trade Organization, 2018 will see a jump in trade growth between 2-4 percent. At its highest, trade growth increase will be more than double the 1.3 percent growth in 2016.
2. Debt becomes more expensive, saving becomes more profitable. According to Acorn.com, the Federal Reserve is expected to announce three interest-rate hikes in 2018. Variable-rate debt will get more expensive to maintain. However, those who save will reap the benefits. At best, savings accounts will yield up to 2.3 percent, a significant jump from 1.5 percent today.
3. Cryptocurrency will grow. In 2017, the Bitcoin’s introduction was met with some trepidation. This year, the market will see an increase in interest around cryptocurrencies, even introducing new ones, like Ethereum. Known as “Bitcoin II,” Ethereum is generally accepted more by financial institutions.
“Overall, the global financial market will see some rebounds in key areas,” said Chris Bragger, financial planning & analysis manager, Unique Finance. “However, it is important for consumers and businesses to stay on top of their financial planning. That is why we are proud to offer a service that will help them do just that.”
