The Arkent Scenario - A Bleak Global Economic Outlook for 2018-2020

We have mentioned that we expect a trade war to unfold between Trump’s America and China this year so how does that translate into the global markets?

Early in 2017 we created what we called the Arkent Scenario as the sequence in which we expected the markets to roll over into global economic trauma. The Arkent scenario was a road map to follow markets and prepare for the worst. It articulated the following signs in this specific order:
