Top 10 part 1: Webinars and Analysis




Once again in 2014, Central Banks led the most viewed calendar pages, but for the wrong reasons (excepted in the US): growth concerns. Economic slowdown has been the main theme this past year, and that’s clear when you see Chinese Manufacturing PMI standing among our top 10. US employment figures, no surprise, are at the top of the list, but in this particular case, for positive reasons: the US growth outstood in relation to the rest of the biggest economies of the world. The imbalance between economic policies, the FED ending its QE programs and close to raise rates versus both the ECB and the BOJ still in the stimulus-injections phase, will probably keep on gathering attention for most of 2015.
