Despite political issues being an ever-increasing headwind for global capital markets the S&P 500, FTSE and ultimately the MSCI World index have new highs in their sights. Tensions in Europe are subtracting from sentiment, especially with the Ukraine Presidential elections on Sunday and the EU parliament elections underway. On the former issue, there seems a real possibility we see a run-off election presumably in June and who wins will determine Russia's subsequent response, and it's this point which seems key for markets. With increasing bloodshed, tensions are rising, so traders will continue to monitor newsflow here. (VIEW LINK)
