Stock market volatility to return in 2018 - WH Ireland's Mike Ingram

Mike Ingram, chief market strategist for WH Ireland, caught up with Proactive's Andrew Scott to look back on the markets in 2017.

''Growth has surprised on the upside'', he says.

''The narrative in place at the start of 2017 was perhaps what we call a secular stagnation scenario - a combination of weak growth, weak productivity ...  what's come out of this year, we think, is probably the best year of growth since  2010''.

As far as the next 12 months go, Ingram suspects we'll see increased volatility creeping back in.

''If you'd been long volatility this year you would've lost nearly 75% of your investment so far this year ... if we start to see that shake up via the US bond market then you're going to see a lot of people 'swimming naked''', he says.
