QCAM Insight

Our review and outlook. Financial markets started 2018 with high expectations but soon were grounded by a different reality. What changed and what lies ahead for the second half? In our judgment, the divergences and tensions that marked the first half of the year will persist, continu­ing to influence currency markets and support the USD.
