NEW YORK ( CNBC) --Wild stock market swings, rocking Wall Street since mid-summer, are likely to last through next year, and investors should get ready for even greater volatility, warn analysts. "I expect volatility to remain high in 2012," says Mark Luschini, chief investment strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott. "The lack of a clear trend in global economic activity, due to lingering issues in Europe and our domestic situation, will sway market sentiment and bring with it sizeable swings in stock prices." Moreover, key countries like China, Russia, France, and the United States will hold national elections next year, and that could potentially amplify stock market volatility.
