The year 2015, many investors witnessed their investments undergo a slow downturn, and this is mostly likely going to continue to the year 2016. Most investors saw most of their capital sink and recorded small profits that brought in uncertainty and much more skepticism that will be experienced in the following year. When such incidents happen, it’s vital that investors get better advice so that they can avert their capital to different options in the market. The mini-crash that occurred between August and October made the situation worse, and this led to skepticism, and mostly the investors started shying off from such investments.
The event led to analysts predicting volatility and uncertainty as far as the stocks are concerned. Most investors are always speculating about the growth of their stock price so that they can tap their full profits from the capital that they invested. In 2016, investors should be focusing on risk as it was experienced in 2015.

A change in oil price affects every aspect in most economies and countries. Oil stabilizes many markets; its fall in price indicates a volatile market. Domino theory better explains the fall of petroleum prices. The theory is used to explain what will further happen to other economies due to the fall in prices.
