Futures market market has had a huge jump in price, which has caused some investors to be reluctant to sell stocks, according to research by asset management firm Asset Managers.
In a recent report, the firm said the price of the S&P 500 index index of leading stocks in London rose 8.8% to £5,400 in the week to 30 March, the highest since April 2016.
“Futures are a great way to diversify your portfolio and a good way to keep track of your returns,” said James Geddes, managing director of asset management company Asset Manages.
“It’s an opportunity to make money, but it’s not the only way to invest.”
The best way to manage your risk is to be conservative and make your decisions in a safe and sensible way.
“Asset Managers has been using the S &M Index, which tracks the price performance of 20 major U.K. companies, to monitor how well the index has performed in the past year.”
We have seen an acceleration in the value of the market in the last six months, with a significant increase in the index’s price performance since the start of the year,” Mr Gedds said.”
This is a sign of strong fundamentals in the market, as well as a rising level of uncertainty around the world, and a strong desire to sell assets.
“Mr Gedd said the index, which started trading in September last year, is now valued at about £3.5 trillion.
Asset Manages said it has seen an increase in traders seeking out the index as they continue to look for opportunities.”
Investors are looking for opportunities to gain exposure to a broad range of assets, with the potential to profit from them,” Mr James Guddes said.
He said investors looking for an alternative asset class may look to equities or commodities as an alternative way to make returns, although he said equities are generally more liquid.”
As an investor, you can look to diversification as an avenue for making money,” he said.
The average price of a basket of 20 companies rose 6.3% to $5,847.10 in the same week, according, to Asset Manager.
