LGT Navigator: Investors have good reasons to be cautious

The main themes on the capital markets remain the same: Brexit, the corporate reporting season that has just started in the USA with balance sheets that have been pervaded (Morgan Stanley disappointed yesterday), continuing economic concerns and ongoing tensions between the USA and China. While British Prime Minister Theresa May has until next Monday to present a "Plan B" for the Brexit, the US and China plan a renewed round of negotiations in the bitterly led trade dispute.

LGT Navigator: May survives vote of no confidence

LGT Navigator: May faces no confidence vote after defeat

Yesterday evening the British Parliament rejected the Brexit agreement negotiated by Prime Minister Theresa May with the EU by a large majority (432 votes to 202). EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker believes that the rejection of the Brexit treaty in the British House of Commons has increased the danger of a "disorderly withdrawal" without an agreement. The EU Commission will now continue preparations for a "No-Deal-Brexit", Juncker commented. Immediately after the vote, the Labour Party asked for a vote of no confidence against Prime Minister May. The vote will take place today. If May loses the vote of no confidence, this could lead to resignation and the formation of a new government or new elections.

LGT Navigator: Decision day in the Brexit poker

The uncertainty before tonight's vote on the Brexit agreement in the British parliament is weighing on the mood of investors. Following a last-minute postponement of a first planned vote in December, MEPs are now to vote today on the legally binding divorce agreement and the political declaration of intent on future relations with the European Union. A rejection of the Brexit deal is considered a foregone conclusion – the question is how clear the defeat of Prime Minister Theresa May will be and what will happen next. Besides new elections – either after a vote of no confidence against May or initiated by herself – a second Brexit referendum or a withdrawal from the EU without an agreement ("No-Deal Brexit"), renegotiations with the EU would also be possible, followed by another vote.
