As to what happens next, no-one knows for sure. That is the nature of risk. As Investors we can in the meantime protect ourselves by diversifying broadly across and within asset classes. Remember that first rule of investing – diversify, diversify, diversify.

It works too – as equity markets have fallen in the past few weeks bonds, in response, have rallied.
