It's not over yet...

This is a correction not a crash – what caused the volatility is likely to remain in place for some weeks.

Summary: The main reason for this correction was a fear the China slowdown is more serious than official statistics indicate. The China situation is a fear, not a reality, but we all need to watch events in China very carefully. A rise in US rates may still happen but I think the rise will be less than most are predicting because of the share market turmoil. The sharp share price rises around the world may not be the end of the correction – it is very difficult to pick the bottom.

Key take-out: In this correction, all investors had the chance to test whether they were comfortable with their equity exposure. Did you lose sleep?

Key beneficiaries: General investors. Category: Shares.
