Q: What trading trends can you share for 2022 and beyond?

“So, 2022 will be remembered as the year that was almost a blood bath in terms of a vast historic sell-off in the markets. We saw this in the tech sector, with major companies reporting record profits in 2021 and experiencing a colossal share sell-off. The cryptocurrency market also experienced a massive crash early in 2022, which persisted throughout the year. The oil and energy sector has been highly volatile in 2022, with record-high prices.

“So, it’s been quite a ride when we look back at the markets. Some signs point towards slowing interest rate hikes, but recessionary and inflationary pressures are still there. We’re not out of the woods yet.

“It doesn’t mean that the markets will come back roaring to all-time highs, but we could be looking to a return to normalcy in 2023. It does mean that there will be a bumpy ride again as countries are doing their best to avoid a deep recession. This is something to consider going into 2023.”

Q: Are there any developments we can look forward to?

“We’re increasing the number of events and seminars we host globally. These events are important to us, presenting an incredible opportunity to physically engage with customers, listen to them, and understand their desires. In 2022, we hosted successful events in Nigeria and South Africa.

“We hope to host even more events in major cities focusing on education. I’m sure clients will find them highly informative and helpful in their decision-making.”
