I get the sense we are at last entering the territory we thought we would be in in June, and the period of 'business as usual' is coming to an end.

It's important to analyse the recent trend than just looking at today's moves. All those uncertainties related to the Italian referendum still exist. We will take a very cautious view on the country's banking sector.

We do seem to be in this ongoing situation of oversupply and until we see signs that the situation is turning around, oil and energy stocks will remain under pressure. It's going to be a theme for the reminder of the year.

Over the course of last few weeks, it became quite clear that Rajoy was going to get a free run. Also, the Spanish economy has done pretty well even without a stable government and the market has performed relatively better.

If he were to decide not to stay until 2021 recent events would raise suspicions that the role of governor is subject to a greater degree of politicization than hitherto believed.

Valuations are becoming even more stretched relative to fundamentals than they were, and that's not a particularly healthy place to be.

When investors realize just how far they are pushing things, they might want to rethink things.

The ECB's policies don't seem to be stimulating the kind of activity that is desired and it might prompt them to do more but ultimately it shows the limits of monetary policy.

It's less to do with what is happening with the real economy and more to do with inflation. It's more of an inflation story than a growth one.

It wasn't the best start to the year, but it wasn't awful. Markets are pricing in a worst-case scenario and we are not seeing that yet.

Caution is the watchword. China's economy is not going to show a massive pickup and I don't think the sector would be able to generate the kind of earnings that it used to have until recent years.

In European markets they're trading in the green at the moment. That's a reflection of the fact that investors realise that the collapse in Chinese markets is not necessarily going to have a huge degree of implications for the European markets in general.

I think if you limit bonuses, it is something that provokes howls of discontent from people who work in the industry. Finance generally plays an important role in a modern industrialised economy. It is important that politicians recongnise what they actually have and don't treat finance as they have other nationally important industries like cars over the past thirty years.

A negative figure for the fourth quarter in the eurozone. But as we go forward, I think the signs are, we'll see some signs of stabilisation in the first half of 2013. I mean that's not to say we'll get big, positive, growth numbers. But something maybe flat, or maybe marginally negative in Q1 and hopefully something flat or maybe slightly positive in Q2.

The markets will probably start to think that Spain has received the bailout however it's framed. And you know when they lose confidence; we all know what happens to bond yields. I think in the current environment, as pressure on Southern European yields will continue to rise, it clearly raises pressure on the ECB to take further action and to buy bonds in the secondary market.

The economy remains stuck in low gear. It's indicative of a flatlining economy, maybe slightly contracting rather than a major slowdown. It doesn't bode well for the first quarter.

That will give the Greek state sufficient time to get its liabilities in order and finance its way over the course of the next couple of years probably. But I suspect that in the long run, the Greeks will have very little choice but to impose some sort of haircut on the debt.
