Why You Should Be a Central Bank Watcher

Get your portfolio ready! A string of central bank decisions could have a big impact on your portfolio going into next year.

Global stock markets are riding an historic bull market that has created more than $19 trillion in wealth since February 2016. But the moves haven't come without criticism: many say the gains are merely the result of trillions in central bank money printing as opposed to legitimate (and repeatable) corporate earnings growth. That thesis will be tested in the next few weeks, however, with key decisions from the European Central Bank, the Bank of England and the U.S. Federal Reserve that will both set the tone for interest rate markets between now and the end of the year and challenge the strength of the "Bull Market That Nobody Believes In".
