Are markets hoping for a fairytale ending?

While many are blaming central bankers for misjudging inflation, rates and economic growth around the world, sharemarkets are hoping that they can engineer a soft landing. So how realistic is the market's current outlook?

While many are blaming central bankers for misjudging inflation, rates and economic growth around the world, sharemarkets are hoping that they can engineer a soft landing. So how realistic is the market's current outlook?

Investors Mutual portfolio manager Dan Moore shares his thoughts on:

  • Why rates matter so much for shareholders
  • What needs to happen for analysts to achieve their forecasts
  • Whether  a 2% fall in rates - within 2 years - is unrealistically optimistic and
  • What to do if you believe a miracle isn't on the horizon
