  • Uncle Fargas says:

    “Michael Saunders, chief UK economist at Citigroup, … the next move could be up or down. ”

  • Maybe Saunders was just being honest – there’s a wide spectrum of different takes being promoted at the moment – anyone who simply listens to the pundits could be forgiven for being bemused.

    Personally, I’m currently in the ‘next move is up, but probably not just yet’ camp.
