2019 Global Market Outlook

December 12, 2018
Disruption in its various forms is likely to determine the course of global markets in 2019, T. Rowe Price experts predict.

Key Points

  • Although the odds of a downturn appear above average given where we are in the economic cycle, we believe a global recession is a relatively low risk in 2019.
  • We believe markets will face disruption stemming from diverging monetary policies, technology amplifying valuation disparities, and geopolitical uncertainty.
  • Correctly identifying the winners and losers in this era of significant change will be key to investment outperformance.
