Alan Green joins the UK Investor Magazine Podcast for a discussion around global markets and UK equities.
Global equity markets have had a rollercoaster of a week with fears over a Russian invasion of Ukraine and the impact of interest rates caused significant levels of volatility in markets.
There is a clear division opening up in global markets with the FTSE 100 rising 1.5% year to date whilst the S&P 500 has shed 8.4% and the NASDAQ 13.5%.
We look at what the composition of the FTSE 100 means, and if it could outperform US indices after years of underperformance in 2022.
FTSE 250 Pets at Home rose 4.5% after the group released 8.7% increase in like-for-like sales and said profit was going to exceed prior expectations.
We also look at the latest developments at Blencowe Resources, Echo Energy and Tertiary Minerals.
Blencowe Resources operate the Orom-Cross Graphite Project in Uganda and have recently updated the market with a works programme.
