Here at FD it’s been a wobbly few months with the old predictable days sales all over the place. Gone are the days when Monday was guaranteed to be busy and Friday slow. It all seems to depend on how confident people are feeling.
News that property prices have stabilised and people buy property companies. News of a major industrial failure and sales of engineering companies splutter to a halt.
As this sort of reaction plays out across the economy it doesn’t take much to see that without confidence we’re going nowhere fast.
And how to get confidence ? A new government would be a good first step.
