    May's just a pawn — Trump's target is Merkel

    May's just a pawn — Trump's target is Merkel
    Donald Trump meets with UK prime minister Theresa May on Friday as he gets down to the business of talking trade. May might find however that she is merely the pawn with EU leader queen Merkel firmly in the sights of the pugilistic US president.

    'Central banks can do nothing': Jakobsen
    Just over a year ago, Saxo Bank chief economist Steen Jakobsen said that a "new nothingness" of zero-bound rates and policies was keeping the world in a state of torpor. This year, we have seen all manner of anti-establishment political movements, but central banks remain on course. Where do we go from here?

    Russia’s crisis is also a huge opportunity

    Chief Economist & CIO / Saxo Bank
    Denmark
    That Russia is a mess is irrefutable. The double whammy of its self-engineered Ukraine crisis and the subsequent oil price collapse has left it floundering. While the crisis may seem at boiling point right now, the passage of time may cool tempers sufficiently for solutions to be devised. Russia may well become the surprise recovery of 2015,.
