The year 2015 ended with little promises for investors. First, the year performed poorly and descended to the mini-crash in the middle of the year. This mini crash diminished the hopes of the investors regarding stock market improvement. As the New Year is setting in, the question in the mind of every investor is if the market will improve. Returns guide investors before making any investment. What made the 2015 year have low morale for investor even after recovering from the mini-crash is the oil price. They steadily continued their fall in the last part of the financial period worsening investors’ confidence to the recovery of the weak markets.
What is the significant turn of events that can restore investors’ confidence in stock markets? Oil prices hugely drive the world economy. Whereas low oil prices are a relief for consumers, they are not good for business. A decrease or crash of the American markets will also have devastating effects on the world economies. Analysts continue to investigate and research on the innovative approaches that may result in the turnover for the New Year.
