The Swiss Market Index (SMI) experienced another volatile trading session this week, following global markets lower again on Friday morning after a brief rally on Thursday. Equity markets remained turbulent throughout the week on fears about the world’s economic outlook with China’s slowdown, the current market volatility and uncertainty around the U.S Federal Reserve’s pending interest rate increase all weighing on investor sentiment. The current emerging market volatility and pending U.S rate hike will be top of the agenda today as finance chiefs from the Group of 20 nations meet in Turkey.
