Key Events in 2016: The Year Ahead

Here is the opening of a helpful calendar from Bloomberg:

Bloomberg News reporters in 128 cities will cover the stories that matter most in 2016. Here's a selected calendar of key events for the year.


Taiwan holds an election and may choose its first female president.

U.S. begins production of liquefied natural gas for export from Cheniere Energy's terminal in Louisiana, the first since 1969. 

World leaders gather for the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Follow our special report.

Vietnam's Communist Party Congress convenes to make leadership changes and set policy.

UN monitors may conclude that Iran has implemented all steps required under July nuclear accord, allowing the U.S. and Europe to lift sanctions.

David Fuller's view

A few of these dates will be important for stock markets.  Inevitably, however, it will be the surprise developments and perhaps a black swan or two which become the events of the year.  Despite all the uncertainties and concerns that people have felt and expressed throughout 2015, I think 2016 will provide a number of opportunities.  Eoin and I aim to identify many of these, helped by our vast Chart Library, plus the interests and experience of our subscribers.

Happy New Year!
