As a small investor, I’m always watching the market and this week my attention was turned towards the US markets. The Federal Reserve increased their base rate and this has global implications. The Bank of England decided to leave our rates unchanged, but for how long? There are already signs that the US dollar will appreciate against other currencies and my shares in GSK are finding favour again and seem a bargain compared to their October price. They have lost £2.00 a share in 2 months.
