Don’t believe everything you hear from forecasters

January can often be referred to as the ‘funny season’ in financial markets with everybody telling us what they think might happen during the next 12 months, the next month, the next day and even the next hour, but we know that evidence shows us that these forecasters are wrong more often than they are right, so what should we do with these forecasts?
