Follow the money
The bookies moved markets just a little this week.
The US Presidential election market remains unchanged, with Ms Clinton favoured to win, comfortably.
The UK Brexit poll has the YES vote firming a reasonable amount.
The Australian federal election sees the Coalition firming a little and Labor easing, a little.
In each case, W&D reminds readers of a couple of truisms:
- "A week is a long time in politics", Harold Wilson, former UK Prime Minister.
- "Too early to say," Zhou Enlai, former Premier of China (when asked, in 1972, about the significance of the French Revolution).
So, don't put your glasses away, yet.
